About Jenkins Butchers

On 17th May 1888, Peterson Jenkins opened his first butcher shop on Ballyclare High Street. The meat shop is still owned by the Jenkins family 130 years later, still trading from the same site where the original shop stood, and still maintaining the same values that Peterson had all those years ago.

We strive to provide the best quality produce and service to our customers and are meticulous with the way we source our meat. All of it comes from local farms - places where we can ensure quality and high animal welfare standards. All of our meat can be traced back to the farm where it was raised.

Guaranteed Quality

Animal husbandry and welfare

We have searched for the best farmers and we work closely with them to guarantee the highest quality produce. We regularly visit all our suppliers, who are based in and around the home counties. Being a small but growing butchery means that we can work closely with these passionate farmers and have built close personal relationships.

At the heart of everything we do is good animal husbandry and welfare. Many of the rare and heritage breed animals are reared using traditional free-range farming methods that are exclusive to Flock and Herd. Our wild game always comes from licensed suppliers.
