TFM Butchers Est. 2005.
Actually based on the Farm and ONLY selling our own Produce.
FORTY years ago a raffle prize of £20 was the foundation for a family farm. John and Margaret Thompson won the prize in a raffle raising funds to build a local swimming pool and used it to buy three piglets, which they reared in John's Father's back garden. When the piglets were large enough the couple sold them and bought a sow, and so the farm grew!
In 1976 John and Margaret moved to Fen Bank Road, Isleham with their sons Steven and Martin and while this family farm keeps its traditional values, it has found a new market with the many
people who want meat from home reared stock, which is full of taste and hasn’t travelled for miles.
This family run business breeds Hereford Cattle and pigs. The cattle graze on Wash Land during the summer months and are fed on locally grown corn during the winter and the pigs
are kept in straw yards. They have very high welfare standards and are members of an Red Tractor Assurance Scheme for the cattle and pigs.
In October 2006 their Application to enter the Great Wash and Little Wash into the DEFRA Higher and Entry Level Stewards Schemes was successful. Through the Scheme the family manage it to help encourage and increase the number of wildlife and breeding and overwintering waders.
In 2005 they started selling their beef, pork and bacon from the ‘Farm Gate’. The beef is hung which enhances the flavour and customers appreciate this. Many people tend to think buying meat from the ‘Farm Gate’ is expensive, it isn’t! "Our prices compare with supermarkets and butcher shops and we would like to encourage the public to come and try our products and see the prices and make their own minds up. We sell all the various cuts of Fresh Beef, Pork, Lamb, ALL our Sausages, Chipolatas and Burgers are made by hand and we cure our own Bacon and Gammon.
