Our Extra Special Welsh Lamb comes from the lush, natural pastures of North Wales mainly from the Conwy Valley, Anglesey and the Vale of Clwyd. These lush pastures provide ideal conditions to produce what is arguably some of the finest lamb available anywhere. With full traceability you can be sure of the highest standards possible of animal welfare and quality. This type of lamb is available throughout the year beginning with the superb new season spring lamb in April.
Salt Marsh Welsh Lamb
Salt Marsh Welsh Lamb from the salt marshes of Anglesey, our lamb was recommended by Rick Stein in his Food Heroes TV series. Indeed, many a parcel of our Salt Marsh Welsh lamb in the past has found its way to a certain costal village called Padstow! This lamb is normally available between June and October - it's simply superb.
New Season Welsh Spring Lamb
During the month of April, when the freshness of springtime is all around us, this time of year marks the much anticipated arrival of our famous New Season Welsh Spring Lamb. Our special New Season Welsh Lamb mainly comes from the wonderful lowland farms of the Conwy Valley and the lush pastures of the Vale of Clwyd where the temperature and climate is more forgiving and thereby earlier in giving than the much later Welsh Mountain lamb.
Welsh Mountain Lamb
During the later part of the year Welsh Mountain lamb becomes available. This hardy and indigenous breed is full of flavour, grazing pastures that have never been farmed in the modern sense. Animal welfare and traditional farming methods are the order of the day with the lamb coming from the many mountainous areas within a 30 mile radius of our shop.
Our lamb has always the correct amount of fat cover for succulence and taste. The meat is then matured for a minimum period to ensure tenderness.
Extra Mature, Quality Naturally Reared Welsh Beef
Our Extra Mature Welsh beef comes from the lush, natural pastures of Wales mainly from the Conwy Valley, Anglesey and the Vale of Clwyd. When available, we specialise in Welsh Black beef, the native breed of Wales, however other indigenous British breeds such as the Hereford and Short Horn are also sold on a regular basis, these are still PGI approved; born, reared and slaughtered in Wales - the breeds just originated from other areas of Britain.
Our dry aged beef is traditionally matured for 3 weeks on the bone with the correct amount of fat cover which is essential. Once the dry aging process has taken place our highly skilled craftsmen butchers prepare and sell the beef on the fourth and sometimes the fifth week. We are justifiably proud of our beef, winner of several awards including True Taste Best Beef in Wales Award (Beef Fillet) and Great Taste Gold.
We only source our poultry and game from accredited British suppliers so you can be sure of the highest quality and welfare standards. Game is only available during the game season from October through to January.
Our pork is mainly sourced from Holywell in Flintshire and the Welsh borders, but British pork is also used when Welsh pork is unavailable. Good pork should have a generous covering of fat which should be firm and white. The meat should also be pale pink in colour and the skin must be dry for plenty of good quality crackling.
All this helps to give the meat a fuller pork flavour, which is sadly lacking in much of the pork available today.
We now also stock the World Famous Iberico Pork, which is truly sensational. For more about Iberico Pork, just click on the Iberico Pork Chop image below.
-???-DRY CURED HAMS & BACON-???-
We have been dry curing bacon, the traditional way by hand, for many years here at Edwards of Conwy. Quality pork with our secret curing recipe gently rubbed into the meat is all that it takes. Our dry cured bacon has won countless gold awards for flavour and consistency. Enjoy the rich taste of times gone by!
“Sausage making should always be an art and never a science!” Ieuan Edwards
We at Edwards of Conwy are amongst the most decorated butchers in the whole of the United Kingdom winning local, national and international awards for our mouthwatering products, particularly famous for our sausages and burgers.
Gluten free sausages are available to order, due to the precise need to avoid cross contamination during the sausage making process in order to achieve gluten free status, these sausages are made in batches and therefore sold frozen. Everyone should be able to enjoy our sausages!
Our philosophy is simple, we use quality ingredients from start to finish such as succulent cuts of shoulder meat and quality bespoke seasonings. These ingredients are then butchered, minced and mixed using traditional methods by people who genuinely care about standards. Finally, we link our sausages, again using traditional methods.

5.1 We are able to offer delivery to all addresses in England, Wales, and the Scottish mainland from Aberdeen southwards. For all other areas you will need to contact us for confirmation of availability of delivery and on price. We will strive to achieve the delivery times below. (You can choose a later delivery day when placing your order if you prefer). We make a charge to cover the cost of packing and delivery; this cost is calculated for you automatically, and you will see the full price before placing your order.
5.2. All orders are dispatched using a next-day, specialist road delivery service (see our delivery pages for more information). This ensures that goods are kept in as near perfect condition during transit. When placing your order, it is important that someone should be at home to take delivery; the trained delivery drivers will have explicit instructions to leave your chill-pack in a reasonably secure place at the premises if no-one is available, and will not take the package back to their depot. The drivers know they are carrying perishable goods. The delivery shall be deemed to have been made either when the consignee accepts delivery in person, or when the driver leaves your chill-pack at the unattended premises. Please note: orders need to be received and acknowledged by 1:30 pm for next day delivery.
Packaging for Delivery
5.3. You may rest assured we have taken great care to ensure your goods arrive in perfect condition. Our packaging standard has been carefully designed to maintain a temperature within the chill-pack of less than 8 deg C for 48 hours – double the time your chill-pack should spend in transit. Most of your meat will be vacuum packed in a food-safe polythene pouch, then a tear-proof polythene bag, then placed in a thermal insulated box, the ‘chill-pack’. Each pack is provided with an ice-replacement gel, which has special low-temperature properties. This gel is non-toxic, food-safe, and can be disposed of safely with normal household waste. Alternatively, you might like to re-use it as a food-safe refrigerant yourself; place it in a freezer for a few hours to condition it, and it can then be used in your cool-bag or sandwich box. The thermal boxes can also be re-used; you may find these are useful for a wide range of storage or packing purposes. In local areas only, we can sometimes deliver directly from our shop to your door in our own refrigerated vehicle, and packaging will vary from that described above.
5.4. We charge a simple flat rate for delivering any order anywhere in the UK – £4.95. This is added to the cost of your order (unless the order is over £95, in which case free delivery is applicable). We are able to offer delivery to all addresses in England, Wales, and the Scottish mainland from Aberdeen southwards. Non Standard National Deliveries e.g. north of Scotland you will need to contact us for confirmation of availability of delivery and on price. On occasion, we may at our discretion, offer free delivery as part of a marketing campaign, details of any such offer will be displayed on our website. If you have any queries regarding this issue please contact us either by telephone +44 (0)1492 581111 or email us: firstname.lastname@example.org
5.5. Technically, we are authorised to send our meat anywhere in Europe. However, we have yet to find a carrier that can guarantee delivery within 48 hours, which is how long the packed meat will stay chilled for. Therefore we currently do not make international deliveries.
5.6 In the event of your order failing to arrive when expected, please contact us by email or by telephone within 24 hours of the expected delivery quoting your order number. We will immediately investigate and update you regarding the situation. Should your order not be delivered within two working days of the date given in the website acknowledgement, you will be entitled to a full and immediate refund.
Acceptable Weight Variation
6.0 Our products are unit priced. When you place your order, it will be for a nominal weight of produce, at a specified price. We will collect the payment via the payment method you select when placing the order. Because orders are individually prepared, it can be expected that there may be some small variation in weights above or below the weight you choose, and it is impractical for us to request additional payments or process small refunds. We will ensure that this variation never exceeds more or less than 10% of any item specified. Items delivered within 10% of the weight ordered shall be deemed complete.
7.0 Because of the seasonal nature of some of our produce and limited supply, it is possible that from time to time, we may be unable to fulfil some orders. If your order is for one specific joint or meal item we will let you know as quickly as possible, within one working day of you placing the order, and offer alternative produce or cancellation at your discretion. In the event of us having to cancel, we will make an immediate and full refund of any monies paid.
Guarantee of Satisfaction
8.0 If, for any reason you are dissatisfied with the quality of the produce received, you should contact us within 24 hours of receipt. All complaints will be dealt with personally and immediately by our Shop Manager, who undertakes to resolve all complaints within 7 days. Your statutory rights are not affected. We regret, we are not able to accept returned goods or claims for goods ordered in error, due to their perishable nature. 8.1 All refunds or product replacements will be made entirely at our discretion.
9.0 We regret that due to the very short timescale involved in processing fresh meat orders, you cannot cancel or amend your order once it has been placed unless specifically agreed by ourselves. If the order has been dispatched then unfortunately we will not be in a position to cancel or amend your order.
