Country Farm Meats is best know for its local meat, but customers kept asking if they could do fresh fish too.

So the Brand Road, Great Barton butcher run by Sam Mooney has teamed up with Lowestoft mobile fish monger Mark Adams to offer fresh fish every Thursday.

Sam explained: “Customers asked for it but we couldn’t do it in here because you’d need separate counters, so this was the obvious way to do it.”

Using a Suffolk-based fishmonger is also in keeping with the shop’s aim to source produce locally.

Pork comes from the farm next door, chickens from Haughley and game from Euston Estate, while Sam says they try to source beef and lamb ‘as locally as possible’. They also cure bacon on site.
