Under Adrian’s management, Golden Valley Meat and Game has been serving the public, retail and catering industry for over 30 years. We supply the highest quality meat, poultry and game locally sourced wherever possible and fully traceable.
It is a family business in the grounds of the family home with a fully equipped butcher’s facility. The village of Grosmont, in the north of Monmouthshire, is in an area of outstanding natural beauty, a wonderful place to live and work.
Adrian began his butchery career working as a Saturday boy on the front counter of a local butcher’s shop. He attended Colchester Avenue College in Cardiff where he received his Institute of Meat membership and qualifications. At the age of 18 he was working as a senior butcher in a Hereford supermarket and by the age of 19 had started his own butchery business.
On the 25th February 2014 Adrian was awarded the prestigious award of Accredited Master Butcher by the Meat Training Council at their annual dinner held in the historic Butchers Hall in Smithfield, London. This impressive award makes him one of only 14 in the UK and the only one in Wales and the Three Counties of Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Gloucestershire.
