R.H Binks & Sons Traditional Family Butchers has been a small family run business since 1920 based in Wakefield.
We pride ourselves in old fashion shop-keeping with a 'The customer comes first' mentality. We supply only the very best locally sourced Yorkshire meat and poultry. Our company started from humble beginnings and continued to grow, we now supply a selection of the finest restaurants, deli's, schools and other Butchers shops around Yorkshire.
Sourcing the majority of our meat from established Yorkshire farms, we support regional farmers who share our commitment to welfare and outstanding quality without the use of intensive farming or growth hormones and additive. Our beef is matured for 28 days to ensure maximum tenderness and flavour, we hold time-honoured techniques above mass produced supermarket offerings.
The Binks family had been Farmers in the village of East Ardsley for decades. Starting from Moor Knoll Farm as a Dairy Milking business, the story of how we began in the butchering business is actually a funny tale...
Like their father before them, Victor & Richard (Dick) worked in the milking business in the 1800's. When business took a small hit, the brothers decided to take a young heifer to the local auction in Wakefield. The price they were offered for the heifer was so low, they couldn't bear to see it go for such a loss, so they walked it home.
They killed the animal and chopped it into lumps taking it on their milk round, offering it to their customers along with their milk. When the next week came along and with no beef, the customers wanted more. Thus, A Binks & Son's was formed on the farm, with the addition of an on-site slaughterhouse and shop to the regular milking business.
