Hello, My name is Kenneth Bashford and in 2012 I took over our elmfield way store from my old employer and friend david tann. i made it a mission and ambition of mine to serve our community and later the country with the best quality service and meat their money could buy. After the first year we had an opportunity to step into and old dewsons shop in Coulsdon high street where we set up our second shop.

6 months later...

another opportunity arose to step into Phil Labrams shop in Caterham on the hill which we did...

6 months later ... 2013

we had yet another opportunity to take over a dream shop in Warlingham from Mr bailEy himself " aberdean house" that was designed to be a butcher shop when it was made in the early 1900s hence the name .

2 years later... 2015

after a successful start we had four successful shops running selling some of the best meat and giving the best service the peoples money could buy which was paralele to my vision ....there was a slight problem though...as many of our business minded customers would be able to see probably clearer than me was the saying " to big too soon "! The truth is you can only do so much with so little and trying to sell a high quality product at less than what you need to be charging for it is unsustainable so due to many factors including a lack of parking on three of the shops led to us going kaput ............ however......as many business owners know ...rising from the ashes can make you stronger Infact we have learned a lot and this only makes the customers experience better with a new approach to the old way of butchery 

3 years later..... 2018
