The small, medium and large meat boxes are available only on an automatic repeat basis, however it is possible to make the other Butcher’s Choices boxes or your very own custom box a repeat option too.
You can make changes to your repeat order as long as you comply with our order deadlines (please see below). Please note that you cannot take items out of a set box. You could, however order additional items to arrive with a set box if you desire.
We understand that our set meat boxes are not to everyone’s taste and don’t meet everyone’s dietary requirements. We are eager to offer our customers the best of both worlds which is why it is also possible custom make your own box. You can do this by visiting ‘The Butcher’s Shop’ tab on our website.
Setting up your regular order takes all the hassle out of shopping. You can choose the frequency and amend, delay or cancel your order.

All of our organic meat and wild game is packaged in a controlled atmosphere to give it a longer shelf life. It arrives in vacuum packs or trays that are easy to store in the fridge or freezer. The foam liners inside of the recycled cardboard boxes which the meat is packed into are made especially for chilled packaging and combined with our ice packs, the meat arrives in perfect condition. The packaging which we use ensures that the contents of the boxes remain at fridge temperature for a 34 hour period in case there happens to be an unavoidable delay in the delivery of your order.
The boxes can be recycled again. The foam liners make great insulation: several of our customers line their attics with them while others use them for pet bedding.
