Not really sure about the lamb,

However you can get 1kg of 5% beef mince in Alid's for under £6

1kg of lidls basic frozen chicken breasts is under £4

The steak prices look expensive but they can vary a good bit depending on how they get aged etc....

I don't know  were all the meat comes from but I see lots of British  lorries delivering  meat  as well as lorries coming from other countries

And we have better standards. We don't chop off pigs tails, stick them in a cage they dont have room to move around in, let them die and leave the bodies in there to rot

That happens maybe in 0.1% of places and probably in the same amount of British places,  in fact there was a place in wolves maybe that found unusual amounts of blood on someone front drive 

Turns out they were butchering animals in shed and selling off.

 

Plenty of meat hand fed free range wanked off daily fairly treated from nice fields in fresh air and sunshine of new Zealand or walking in s**t in a field in Hull 

 

Apart from the environmental aspect of not shipping meat across the world and supporting local for locals sake there's 0 reason to go British from what I can see

Open to reasoning if anyone has reasons tho can't say I know much about meat

Ever had Danish bacon? It's horrible stuff that gets covered in white gunk when you cook it.

Isn't Danish bacon famously better than any other?

Depends on the farm it’s come from. Mince feels expensive. I buy grass fed 99% mince for £8 per kilo.

Organic lamb I buy whole for £220 (24kg or so).

Only steak I buy is skirt / flank and that’s £8-£10 per kilo.

Speak to any butcher they will tell you never buy chicken from Poland. Holland at a stretch but I’ll take Irish chicken over that muck any day

Sorry I meant where is the chicken from? My butcher in Armagh, well several ive spoke to said never to buy or eat chicken that hails from Poland. Apparently their living condition and how it’s prepared is something you would expect out of China or similar. I get 5kg or chicken. From Crossgar at £20 happy enough with that.
