The business was started in 1945 by Albert Allum, in Wakefield Market, and has been in the family for three generations.

Meat was rationed to Albert and he was the first to sell heifers (female cattle). He went for quality not quantity.

If he had sold bulls (male cattle), it would have enabled him to sell more meat. The concept of quality not quantity was born.

I run the business from our two modern shop premises, ensuring fresh produce for our online butchers.

Product quality is of the utmost importance and to achieve this we engage in solid working practices and solid relationships with our suppliers who produce the type of meat we demand.

Consistent standards are important in the sourcing and manufacturing of our meat as this helps achieve customer satisfaction.

All carcasses are hand prepared on the premises, by our knowledgeable skilled staff, to ensure the product is of the very best quality and taste.

The Community stall this month will be highlighting the work of the U3A (University of the Third Age).

We welcome back Rythym Aire:  Des (keyboard) and Charlotte (vocals) with their popular mix of jazz, blues and latin music

In June the Community Stall is Horsforth Live at Home Scheme, who are publicising the invaluable work they do in our community.

June's Spotlight is on...

Mario’s ‘Gusto Italiano’

My name is Mario and I was born in Vienna in 1982 to an Italian father and an Austrian mother. We moved back to Sardinia when I was 6 months old.

I moved to beautiful Yorkshire in England in 2001. I am passionate about cooking and love to turn my passion into a successful business. I use all fresh, local produce when I can.

I sell a wide range of pecorino cheese and cured meats.

My specialties are pork meatballs, stuffed peppers, stuffed focaccia, lasagna, parmigiana, cannelloni, tasty Italian pizza, fresh Italian donuts and classic tiramisu, homemade ciabatta bread and a lot more.

Come and try my fresh home-made produce on the first Saturday of each month at the Horsforth Farmers’ Market

News

As a result of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic we have put a number of measures in place for the August Market to ensure that all our customers, stallholders and volunteers remain safe. For the forseeable future, because of the current social distancing guidelines, we have moved to the grounds of St.Margaret's Church where it should prove easier to ensure a safe shopping experience for our customers, stallholders and volunteers.

You are asked not to attend if you have any of the COVID-19 symptoms, i.e. high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or change in taste or sense of smell.

Everyone attending the market will be asked to comply with social distancing guidelines and we will be operating a one-way system round the stalls, with managed queues to limit the number of customers in the market at any one time.

Household groups are welcome but we ask all households to remain together. We will provide hand sanitiser upon entry to and exit from the market and encourage all customers to use contactless methods of payment where possible. Customers are asked to only touch the stall items that they are definitely going to buy.

We plan to have a total of 18 stalls covering a wide range of products and look forward to welcoming you to our new site at the slightly later starting time of 09:30. Last entry to the market will be 12:30.
