Meat for a Week September

Godfreys Meat for a Week - September

Our specially designed for busy households - Meat for a Week Service - where you can cook some cuts straight away, keep some in the fridge - or pop some into the freezer for the end of the week.
No need to buy for every single day - just buy for the days you need - be it for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner or for that Special Occasion

Not every customer has time to visit our shop in their busy lives - and some would like the convenience of all the week’s meat requirements taken care of in one go. 

Avoid the disappointment of the supermarket visit
So now you can Click and Collect or have Godfreys Premium Quality Meats and Poultry delivered in one box - Nation wide direct to your door - with something new to enjoy every day - without having to resort to the disappointment of the supermarket visit.

It wasn’t really our idea
It’s what many of our customers already do - and they have grown to rely upon it so much we thought we should share the idea with all of our customers.

Rather than offer pre-chosen quantities and selection we have tried to emulate what many of our customers already do to help them in their busy lives.

We soon realised that many households may have two people in one day, and maybe six the next, so fixed quantities was not such a good idea.

We also realised that different required different meat preferences.

Make your choice easier-and quicker!
So the best choice was to create on our Website a tab for each day of the week showing our customers top preferences for that day so make your choice easier-and quicker!

That way you can work through the days with easy choices and you can also decide what quantities will suit that day.

Your entire Weekly Meat shopping in minutes
Just start on a day and make a choice - add it to your cart - and within a few minutes you will have completed your entire weekly Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

The daily selections naturally reflect the changing seasonal changes each month. 
As we enter September we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in September and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

What’s good to eat this Month
Seasonal food is the time of year when food is at its optimum, either in terms of flavour or harvest. In today's global food market most foods are available all year round but when local seasonal food is available it tends to be fresher and cheaper because there has been less transportation and storage time from farm to fork.
Foods are usually harvested when they are at their peak and typically have the most flavour and nutrients, so eating seasonal food tends to be tastier, healthier and better for the environment.

Summer still lingering, Autumn coming nearer
Because of the good weather this year, crops appear to be two or three weeks ahead of normal so gathering in the harvest becomes an even more urgent scramble this year
Calling the Mare
We never tire of telling this story!
As the last crops were harvested in September in days of yore there used to be a lovely old ceremony called “Calling the Mare”
The farmers all wanted to prove they had the best reapers, so they tried to gather in the last of their crops before the neighbouring farmers did
The last sheaf of the harvest was to make a rough Mare shape and it was quickly sent round to any farmers who had not finished gathering their crops
It was a way of saying to the farmer that wild horses would be after their crop if they didn’t gather them in quickly
The men would run round to the neighbouring farm, throw the mare over the hedge where the other farmer was working and would shout “Mare! Mare!” then run away
The farmer who received the Mare would then have to work quickly to see if he could finish before another did, and then he would throw the Mare to them.
The farmer who was the last to finish had to keep the Mare all year round and have it on display so that everyone knew he had been the slowest farmer of that year.
