Meat for a Week - June

Godfreys Meat for a Week Website Service

With the Covid-19 virus repercussions vastly increasing the demand for cooking at home every day - maintaining our usual constant availability is proving difficult - but rest assured we are working tirelessly with our Farmers to quickly replenish availability as soon is possible on a Daily basis - so you can continue to enjoy eating seasonally

We continue to strive to offer full service normality - and availability - but hope you understand if some Cuts periodically run out for a short period of time


Godfreys Meat for a Week - June

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

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

The disappointment of the supermarket visit

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

So now you can Click and Collect or have Godfreys Premium Quality Meats and Poultry delivered in one box - Nationwide 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 selections 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.

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, fortnightly or monthly Meat requirements - tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

The daily selections naturally reflect the changing seasonal changes each month. 

As we enter June, we have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular - and seasonal in June - and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

Farmers’ delight

June is named after the Roman goddess Juno. The month of June is a particularly popular month for weddings - perhaps because Juno was the goddess of marriage

June is also our farmers’ delight and joy - where promise and fulfillment blend and burst out in the growth of crops and newborns

Bright sunny days and pleasant evenings start to usher in the delights of Summer

With ingredients from Beef, Pork, Lamb to Wood Pigeon and Rabbit at their best, now is the time to eat seasonal!

Enjoy the start of Summer

With Summer now fully underway we can start to enjoy Fennel, Globe Artichokes, Lettuces, Rocket, Watercress, Spinach, juicy Peas, Broad Beans, Peppers, Sorrel, Spinach, English Tomatoes, French Beans, Chicory, Samphire, Spring Onions and Radishes

Lamb, Beef, Diced Cuts and smaller meat Cuts including our Mini Roasts start to gain popularity as the weather warms with Gammon remaining a favourite for those who like to make their own Roast Hams

Racks of Lamb and Lamb Noisettes are particularly in great demand

And of course the Barbecue Cuts really start to come into their own in June

If you are having an early Barbecue in addition to the usual favourites - do try our Boerewors Sausages - South Africa’s favourite Beef Sausage - the full story is on the www.Godfreys.co  Sausage page

Quick-to-prepare - and - Quick-to-cook 

With Meat for a Week we find that the quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook recipes dominate Monday to Fridays - whilst the weekend is when the longer cooking big guns have their day

Some of our super organized customers make a big casserole or stew for weekdays that can last a few days and can be quickly heated up and served when they get home

Our featured Seasonal meat this month - Free Range Dry-Aged Beef - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of June on our Website
