For 42 years, most of you will know that Colin was a familiar face behind the counter at Williams, the butchers shop in Fleckney. However, some customers are still asking “Where’s Colin?”. We are delighted to tell you that he is just a stone’s throw away, working at Bridge 67 Butchers in Kibworth. He has been working there for the past two years and is still making his famous ‘Colin’s Sausages’.
He’s along Debdale Lane
Working with John and Jill Vickers from Binleys Bridge Farm, Debdale Lane, Smeeton Westerby, Colin has been an integral part in helping to establish a butcher’s shop in the village. Using his butchery skills, customer knowledge and supplier contacts, Colin has helped to create what is a thriving village butchers. Today the shop sells a fantastic range of fresh meats, homemade sausages, handmade burgers, kebabs, ready to cook dishes, cooked hams, pork pies and sausage rolls. The shop also sells a wide range of British Cheeses, Hambleton Breads, Oven and Hobs Cakes and Desserts, Kingarth Farm Dairy Milk and Cream to name just a few.
All of the beef and lamb comes from the farm in Smeeton Westerby, and the pork is sourced from the sister farm also located in Smeeton. This allows the shop to sell all of the meat cuts, using a nose to tail approach, therefore supplying customers with the unusual cuts like cheeks, oxtail, neck of lamb, livers, kidneys and many more. Both farms promote high welfare, sustainable, regenerative farming techniques and with a small supply chain, are able to ensure the best quality meat is available at all times.
