Top quality continues
THE Childers Butchery has long been a welcome addition to the local business community, with the Everett family operating it for 50 years.
In April 2015 it changed ownership, and Jamie and Cathy Rush have continued to showcase their passion for quality products while still maintaining the exceptional service for which Childers Butchery has always been known.
Jamie and Cathy are proud to have just celebrated the butchery’s first birthday since taking over and they are so happy with the support they have received from the local community.
In the first year Childers Butchery welcomed Andrew Koeppen as a full-time butcher and just recently employed a young local, Zachary Vellacott, as an apprentice, making for a great team.
Jamie said the majority of the products sold at Childers Butchery were sourced from local farmers and suppliers which helped keep the money in the local community.
“With our ‘fresh is best’ motto our product range has increased dramatically and now includes a wider range of fresh meats through the display case,” Jamie said.
“The fresh oysters have been a real hit and we plan to continue to make these available.
“We also have a wider range of seafood now in the freezer section, along with some rabbit and quail for those who prefer something a little different.
“We still have the free range chicken, local farm fresh pork and local farm fresh beef, while also having a greater range of old fashioned hams and smallgoods, a supply of prepacked and frozen foods.
“Added to that are some simple extras such as local honeys and sauces that can complement our meat and free range eggs.”
There is a new display shelf stocking a great variety of spices, curries and sprinkles.
“So we have specially cut rib fillet, a large array of gluten free sausages, lamb sausages, lamb swagman rolls and premium top-grade rump.
“The last 12 months has seen a vast rise in the cost of beef and we have tried very hard to absorb much of these price rises.
“A great way to save on the cost is to buy in bulk, for example sides or quarters or bulk packs.”
For the locals who may have their own cattle, Childers Butchery provides the service of private kills, where your beast is returned to you cut and packaged as you require.
The team at Childers Butchery would like to thank the community for its continued support.
