Our next date for beef boxes will be Saturday December 16th 2017. At the moment the butcher hasn’t got a vacuum packer so this meat (which will be from a 20 month pedigree bull) will be in freezer bags. To make up for this, each box will weigh at least 16 kg, which means lots of high quality meat at an incredibly good price!
All our beef cattle are pedigree Devon (‘Red Ruby’) and are born and raised at West Ilkerton. They are grass fed, kept as naturally as possible and treated with compassion at all times. We take them to the local abattoir in Combe Martin ourselves.
Our beef boxes cost £150 each, and contain an excellent selection of roasts, steaks, mince and meat for slower cooking. At least 12 kg of meat (all the boxes weigh 13 kg plus to allow for the rib bone and some fat on certain cuts so they cook well).
Typical contents of each box:
Silverside 1.5 kg
Topside 2.0 kg
Brisket 2.0 kg
Slow roast 1.4 kg
Rib roast 1.3 kg
Rump steak 0.5 kg (pack of two)
Fillet steak 0.3 kg (pack of two)
Sirloin steak 0.4 kg (pack of two)

A bag of bones and/or a bag of dog meat are both free (please ask if you’d like some).
Delivery is free in the Lynton area (within 5 miles by road of EX35 6QA), and we may be able to deliver frozen meat to somewhere central in Ilfracome, Barnstaple or South Molton.
You’re welcome to collect your meat from West Ilkerton Farm if you prefer.
We also sell frozen mince, stewing steak, sirloin steak and rump steak if we have some left over after doing the boxes. Prices listed above.
Free dog bones may also be available. Collection only.
During October, November and December you can order lamb from us in half lamb boxes, cut in the traditional way and vacuum packed. Cut as you want it (whole or half leg & shoulder, rack of lamb or chops, boned and rolled breast or mince).
The price is £70 per box.
A typical box contains 2.8 kg leg
2.2 kg shoulder
0.6 kg cutlets (8 cutlets)
0.7 kg loin chops (6 loin chops)
0.7 kg mince or rolled breast
All in all, that’s 7 kg, so a box works out at £10 / kg.
