Humphrey’s Butchers

Humphrey’s Butchers is a traditional family butchers with shops in Bury St Edmunds, Saffron Walden, Braintree and Bishops Stortford. As lovers of great food and cooking, their priority is sourcing quality suppliers.

Paul Humphrey and generations of his family before him were regulars at the local cattle markets. Along with grazing his own cattle, this has given Paul a keen eye for what makes great meat. With very few livestock markets in operation, nowadays Paul visits the local farmers and small abattoirs in our area to find traditional breeds and the very best meat.
