Meat for a Week October

Godfreys Meat for a Week

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 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. 

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

October ushers in a chilly bite to the air

As the burnished autumnal gold and crimson leaves twirl and fall, creating a carpet of riotous colours - October ushers in a chilly bite to the air. As the nights draw in, we all start to look for more comfort foods to bolster our energy levels through the colder and blustery weather. 

Robustly sized and flavoured Roasts and Stew

This is where the big guns get wheeled out with robustly sized and flavoured Roasts and Stews often enriched with Freshly Made Free Range Beef Stock, Chicken Stock - or for the more adventurous with rarities such as Pork Caul or Beef Marrowbones

Game and Pork Roasts

Game also comes into its own now and also Pork Roasts who have come back from their Summer holidays just in time to be twinned with the Bramley apples that abound now.

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 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 - Partridge - has been covered in detail in our “What’s in Season” article sent earlier this week - and currently available during the whole of October on our Website
