Local Butcher and Business – H.V Graves

Local Butcher and Business - H.V Graves

At the Kelling Estate we understand that we are very lucky to be surrounded by numerous skilled farmers and local businesses providing high quality products and services.

Where possible we like to source our produce locally, which is especially true when it comes to sourcing responsibly raised, high quality meat. The meat used within our Garden Terrace Café is supplied by H.V Graves, a well-known family-owned butchers.

Just 5 miles from the Kelling Estate, the produce could not be any more local. H.V Graves raise their own cattle and pig stock which is managed by Jill Graves and source any remaining stock from other local farmers, with lamb from farmer Chris Lakey and chicken from a farm just outside of Marsham. As well as the animals being bred and raised locally, the shop that was originally opened in Briston by Herbert Victor Graves in 1946 is still where this renowned business operates from.

The offering not only includes high quality meat products which are made on site, but a bakery full of tantalising treats which can be purchased next door at their expanded shop. The butcher’s counter is always beautifully presented with a whole range of meats, cuts and even prepared ready-to-cook meals. One of their best sellers, and a firm favourite of ours, is their sausages which are available in both traditional and exciting new flavours as well as gluten free options. The deli counter is also stocked with a range of cooked meats including smoked ham, turkey breast and ox tongue, as well as local cheeses. There is a full and delicious range of products to enjoy including homemade black pudding which is a great accompaniment to your sausages in a full English breakfast.
