Meat for a Week February

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 February

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 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.

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

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

We enter February

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

Winter bites with its teeth

In February we do well to remember that Winter either bites with its teeth or lashes with its tail - so this is the time for comfort, for good food, and cosy reassuring warmth  

In our need to wage war against the cold we turn to the food that bolsters our energy levels and comforts us during the long dark hours  

All in season

With Horseradish, Jerusalem Artichokes, Kale, Parsnips, Cauliflower, 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

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

Game now features regularly on our menus with such favourites as Pheasant, Red Leg Partridge, Venison and hard to find Wild Rabbit - as do filling Thrifty Cuts such as Ox Cheeks, Short Ribs of Beef, Middle Neck of Lamb, Breast of Lamb and Pigs Cheeks

Splendidly seasonal Recipe suggestions :

February seasonal recipes to try include some Thrifty Cuts this month as we recover from the Festive period and January Sales spends - and the Fuel Bills start coming through the letterbox.

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 Thursdays - whilst the weekend is when the longer cooking big guns have their day

Precious leisure time

Some of our super organized customers - especially in the colder months - 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 to save their precious leisure time

Our featured Seasonal meat this month - Guinea Fowl - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of February on our Website
