Meat For a Week - March

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

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.

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 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 people sometimes 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 or even monthly Meat requirements tailored precisely to your personal requirements and taste.

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

We have updated our Meat for a Week tab on our Web site to reflect what becomes more popular in March and hopefully help make your choices less time consuming and easier

Blowing the cold Winter away

As we enter March the days start to get longer with the winds pushing against the trees and blowing the cold Winter away - bringing the breath of Spring into the air.

We therefore still yearn for the comfort of richly flavoured, hearty good food, and cosy reassuring warmth

Daylight hours still seem very short and we seem to have retained an appetite at weekends for more low and slow cooking.

All in season

With Jerusalem Artichokes, Kale, Parsnips, Cauliflower, Swede, Salsify, Celeriac, Leeks and Purple Sprouting Broccoli - all in season - there is no shortage of fresh ingredients to add their contribution to the rich robust meals we oh! so look forward to at this time of year

In March there is also the opportunity to celebrate St David’s Day - and St Patrick’s Day - so plenty of demand for Lamb, Leeks and Corned Beef, Gammon and Cabbage

With Meat for a Week we find that the quick-to-prepare - and quick-to-cook recipes dominate Monday to Thursdays - 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 - Spring Lamb - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of March on our Website
