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
