About Jenkins Butchers

Traditional Butchers, Great Quality, Personal Service.

container for image of Jenkins store front

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.
