Pynes of Somerset

What do you get when you buy meat from a supermarket? A warm welcome? Personal service? A product which can be traced right back to the farm it came from? Value for money?

Probably not. But here at Pyne’s of Somerset we can offer all those – as our hundreds of regular customers can testify.

But it’s not only the quality our products that makes us so special. It’s also the close links we have created and maintained with local farmers since our business was set up by Phil and Beryl Pyne in 1984. We only sell meat from animals that have been reared to the highest standard. And there’s a further advantage in our policy of local sourcing: livestock only have to travel a few miles to slaughter – and stress-free animals means better-tasting meat.
