About Us

We are Dave and Deb Parker and we head up this family shop. Dave is a classically trained butcher who joined the Royal Navy and ‘ran-away-to-sea’ when the supermarkets overran the traditional butcher’s shop. Now he’s back and ready to wave a defiant cleaver at supermarket meat and bland food in general. Deb comes from the world of retail banking which is lucky because bookkeeping isn’t Dave’s strong point. We met in a friends kitchen in 2005 and have been cooking up a storm ever since. We have four children (well, one child and three adults) and live on a smallholding just over the border in Somerset. Our rare breed pigs and sheep even make an appearance in the shop from time to time! At home we live in the kitchen and have both been cooking from scratch for as long as we can remember.

We cut, create and cook as much as we can in the shop… Debs Pies are a masterpiece of properly filled pastry and Dave’s knife skills could rival a Samurai.

In today’s modern times we have many ways for you to place an order with us. You can check out our products online here within our online shop. We also operate a phone/message/email/carrier pigeon ordering system if you’d prefer to speak to someone about our products. But remember, we love chatting to you in person too! So feel free to pop in and see what we have in the shop – just come with a list if you are hungry!
