With over 5 generations of farming experience, the Cossins family proudly hand rear Aberdeen Angus, Hereford and Rawstar milking cows on our family farm in Tarrant Rawston, Dorset. Our herds are grass fed all year round on the naturally lush and mineral rich grass of the Tarrant Valley. Our beef is then matured and hung on the bone for at least 28 days, which allows the fibres of the meat to break down. This natural process makes our beef incredibly tender and it is how our meat gets its "old fashioned" and superb flavour.
"Keep your food miles low and your taste experience high" at Rawston Farm Butchery and Shop we offer full traceability on all our meat which has been either reared on our own farm or sourced from only the best local farmers and suppliers. You'll find it hard to source other Dorset meat that’s been more devotedly farmed, butchered, and prepared. Home-grown quality is everything to us and we are proud to display the "Love Local Trust Local" symbol on our produce. All the meat we sell has been expertly cut by hand, by our own skilled butchers in the farm’s own butchery, leaving only the best meat and fat for a superb taste.
We offer the finest home-produced beef and locally sourced chicken, pork and lamb to bring you the best produce Dorset has to offer. Our produce extends to the seasons and locally sourced venison, game, veal and free-range turkeys are also available to purchase as the season dictates.
Our friendly butcher is always on hand to guide and advise you on what cuts of meat best suits your needs. If you cannot see the cut of meat you are looking for, we are happy to prepare this for you whilst you wait. We pride ourselves on the quality of the food we supply as well as a full understanding of its journey from field to fork.
As well as our award-winning meats our Farm Shop stocks our home-made sausages, meat pies, sausage rolls, scotch eggs and an increasing variety of “home cooked” ready meals. Our expert chefs continue to add to our range on a regular basis. We also stock local free-range eggs, a selection of fresh locally grown seasonal vegetables and a wide range of dried goods, cereals, condiments, sauces, chutneys and preserves all sourced from award winning local producers.
Come and see what we have to offer and experience the true taste of Dorset all under one roof.
