Husband and wife team, New Zealand born farmer Tim Williams and London born creative Claire Williams are about to launch their high-quality, organic, delivery service; The Slow Meat Company.
The SlowMeat Company sources locally slow grown meat, processed by small scale operators in Somerset, offering fully traceable, high welfare, quality traditional British breeds suchas the Ruby Red Devon, Aberdeen Angus, Hereford, Sussex and English Longhorn.
Five different luxury meat boxes, the ‘Taster’ (£39), ‘Premium’ (£49), ‘Slow Meat Special’ (£49), ‘The Mighty Meat Box’ (£89), or a ‘Bespoke’ box can be ordered online for a special occasion or regularly on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis. The meat, ranging from premium grass fed sirloin steaks to braising joints, is delivered overnight in wool insulated, ice packed chilled boxes and includes hand printed instructions and handy cooking tips to get the most from your chosen cut.
A born and bred farmer’s son from New Zealand, Tim Williams has worked on large scale cattle ranches, free-range livestock farms, in a Venison plant on the rugged West Coast of New Zealand and has been managing organic farms in the UK’s southwest. Wife and ex-Londoner Claire is a London College of Fashion Graduate who runs her own vintage dress making business, Princelilly. With a keen eye for creative detail, the duo have already been causing quite a buzz online with The Slow Meat Company’s fun and stylish social media updates, 700 followers within a couple of weeks of trading and plug via Ben Sherman’s homepage.
