NATIONAL BUTCHERS’ WEEK: MEET OUR BUTCHER EMMA

By: Sarah Date: 03/15/17 Category: News

Our highly skilled team of butchers here at the Farm Shop -Simon, Colette, Sam, Peter and Emma- is full of creativity and passion. They live by the motto 'Local is good, provenance is key'. Provenance is key to us because we not only believe in food that tastes great but that is also local, sustainable and is good for our community, the environment and our customer’s health. This week, to celebrate National Butchers' Week, we thought we'd find out a bit more about our butchers. Today is the turn of trainee butcher Emma:

How long have you worked at the Farm Shop?
9 years

What's your favourite part of the job?
Coming up with new ideas and I love making sausages!!!

Who is your favourite chef?
Jamie Oliver and Rachel Khoo.

Not many people know that...
Emma travelled with Gwen (of the Farm Shop Cafe fame) to Thailand and Kenya for a few months. She also sailed around Portugal on the tall ships race for 3 weeks, and had a big role in the organisation of The Good Life Experience last year. She is multi-talented!
