A West Midlands butcher is expanding its business as it embarks on a partnership with a stately home’s Granary Farm Shop.
Robinsons of Tettenhall, butchers for over 100 years, will be operating the Butchery at Weston Park’s recently launched, Granary Farm Shop.

The family butcher, located in Wolverhampton, has developed a renowned reputation for supplying the finest quality fresh meats from locally sourced farmers.

Established in 1905, Robinsons has continually invested in its business to ensure premium quality produce and unrivalled customer service. Its traditional butchery techniques and practices have created award winning sausages and black pudding, dry-cured bacon and homemade pork pies.

Speaking of the expansion Robinsons owner, Steve Robinson, said: “We are very excited to be expanding our business and believe Weston Park’s Granary Farm Shop is the ideal venue to showcase our produce to a wider audience.”

To launch the joint partnership, Weston Park and Robinsons hosted a sausage sizzle evening allowing customers to sample the award winning products for themselves.

Welcoming the Robinsons team Weston Park’s chief executive, Colin Sweeney said: “We are delighted to welcome Steve and his team to the Granary Farm Shop. Their expertise and passion will help to position the Granary as the place to shop for the regions best local produce.”

“We want to thank Martyn and Helen Rowley of Buttercross Farm Foods who initially managed the butchery since the Granary Farm Shop launch in April.”

The Granary Farm Shop is located in the former 1767 Granary building on the Weston Park estate. The building has been sympathetically restored with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and regional development agency, Advantage West Midlands.

The total award, of just over one million pounds, was granted on the basis of repairing and restoring the North face of the listed building.

The Shop also features locally sourced food and drinks from regional suppliers and sells produce such as seasonal fruit and vegetables, cheese, local beers and bakery products.
