Award winning convenience store, Pinkie Farm in Musselburgh, has partnered with Scotch Butchers Club member, The Butchery, based in Lockerbie to bring locally born, reared and processed meat to its customers.

Built in 2014 on the site of the original farm, Pinkie Farm Convenience Store is an independently owned business that recently joined the SPAR Scotland symbol group, another family run Scottish business.  The Butchery is a true “Farm to Fork” supplier with its own farm and processing site producing Scotch Beef, Scotch Lamb and Specially Selected Pork.

Pinkie Farm, Managing Director, Dan Brown said: “We have been looking for a true farm to fork butchery supplier for some time now and are delighted to have found The Butchery. We have been incredibly impressed with the quality, innovation and heritage of their products and are very excited to be introducing them to our customers.”

John Carlisle from The Butchery added: “We are delighted to be expanding our retail range to Pinkie Farm. Providing a variety of 30 different products from premium steaks, burgers, sausages and our famous steak pies. The store pride themselves on their points of difference, working with many different local suppliers and creating a range of their own products under their Carla’s Kitchen concept.”

With a range that’s unique for a convenience store, the partnership delivers the best of Scotland’s red meat to East Lothian.

QMS Director of Market Development, Tom Gibson said: “Quality Meat Scotland is thrilled to witness the dynamic partnership between a convenience store and a member of the Scotch Butchers Club. This collaboration showcases the commitment of both parties to delivering high-quality Scottish red meat to consumers. By combining the convenience of a local store with the expertise of a skilled butcher, together they offer customers the best of both worlds—an accessible shopping experience enriched by the craftsmanship and provenance of our premium products. It’s a testament to the value of collaboration and the shared goal of providing consumers with exceptional choices and flavours.”
