Kyle McDonald, owner of Crafted Meats, said: “There’s pressure on farmers throughout Britain to produce more, do it quickly and for less money.
“Buying meat locally through us means you will be supporting our Lancashire farms and helping them produce top-quality, nutritious food.
“Our meat will always taste the way that it should and we do our absolute best to offer it at the best possible price.
“We choose the best meat from British native breeds reared on independent farms and smallholdings, free from growth hormones, antibiotics or cruelty.
“Meat is dry-aged for a minimum of 21 days, sometimes 28 for deep flavour, and we use only natural ingredients in our sausages and burgers and combine all of this with contemporary knowledge of taste and cooking.”
Orders can be placed online or over the phone with deliveries made across the PR and FY postcode areas on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
