In 1960 Jim Pirie opened a butchers shop in Newtyle. Five years later, his son Alan joined him in the business. They have always maintained their reputation for handling quality produce and customers come from far and wide to purchase from a wonderful array of meat products enhanced by a hand-picked delicatessen range and a selection of fresh fruit and vegetables.

In 1996 Jim... and Alan decided that "innovation" was the only way forward for butchers to survive in the changing market place. They created a new lamb sausage seasoned with apple mint and rosemary which was a huge success with customers and won them the 1996 Scottish Meat Award. Many more awards followed and in 1997 the firm was awarded the Scottish Enterprise Tayside - Innovation Prize for the Best Small Business.

Pride of place amongst all the 143 awards they now hold are the 2005 Scottish Haggis Champion and the 2005 Scottish Pork Sausage Champion - a unique double achievement for a Scottish butcher.

The firm now boasts 38 different varieties of sausages and burgers from traditional pork and beef to pork and caramelised red onion to gluten free varieties. We are proud to support Scottish farmers - all our meat has full traceability back to Scottish farms. One of our most popular products is dry cured bacon which is cured in Newtyle using local pork.

Come and visit us in Newtyle and see our exciting range of traditional and unusual products for all the family - we will be pleased to "meat" you!

We were delighted to be awarded the 1996 Meat Product of the Year and Scotland's Sausage Masters for 1999. Our many other awards can be viewed here.

We are also proud to support Scottish Farmers, one example being that we dry-cure bacon from locally- produced pork.
