Stanforth Butchers, Skipton



Stanforth Butchers was established pre war by Jim Stanforth who quickly became well known in the town for the delicious pork pies he was making.


After moving to the Millbridge site that the shop still stands on today over 80 years ago, the business continued to grow and the pies became more sought after both by the people of Skipton and the many visitors to the town.


Throughout the years Stanforths have kept to the same recipe and traditional ways of making their famous pies, sausage and other products thus ensuring top quality products through to the present day.


To further develop the business Stanforths obtained a state of the art cutting plant at the Auction Mart in Skipton. This site ensures that Stanforths can continue to grow whilst keeping up to date with the latest legislation and methods in the butchering industry.


The meat sold by Stanforths is all traceable back to local farms in the Skipton area. These animals are sourced for us by James (Amos) Dewhurst who uses his years of experience to ensure we get the high quality we demand. The cattle he buys are usually Belgium Blue and Limousin Heifers, whilst the Lambs are Texel or Suffolk Lambs. The meat is left to mature so as to ensure top quality meat is always on offer.
