Ironically I have joined free range review today as I was becoming less and less happy with this vendor and wished to search for a different farm shop local(ish) to us in Cirencester. I cannot put my finger exactly on what has caused to me to have second thoughts, but just a general feeling that prices have increased and service has decreased proportionately. In thirty words or less I would say that despite the many awards Butts Farm Rare Breeds Shop have received it feels rather average from a customer's point of view.

Not wholly sure what has happened to this once lovely place. Not shopped there for over 18 months (change of personal circumstances) but travel took me past their door so I couldn't resist. The atmosphere has really changed and it now seems an unhappy place. Grumpy staff and, my goodness, how much the prices have risen. It was so good and I genuinely think it has now become mediocre.

I used Butts Farm Shop as a supplier ofr a while but have since found somewhere else that in my opinion is preferable. I had noticed a distinct reduction in the quality of service and coupled with the steadily increasing prices (also commented on by others) I felt that my custom had become very much taken for granted. Whilst I have praise for their merchandise, for me, customer service and pricing is important particularly as to find independant small scale or artisan suppliers one has to invariably travel to some degree, which incurs both a time and cost factor. When one has made the effort it is disappointing to be greeted almost as if one is an inconvenience. My suggestion is look for yourselves as your experiences may be better than my own. For pricing and often disdainful service I am, (with great sadness) only able to mark Butts Farm shop as "poor".

Was not sure what to make of this place, and as this is my first review, and was also my first visit to this local food supplier I will try to be as objective as possible. OK - range of goods I thought was pretty good. Prices - I thought very high, even in comparison to other specialist shops I felt it was on the extremely pricey side. Ease of finding - It's easy enough to find, although has a restricted entranceway (one car at a time) so would not want to be there when it was busy. Service - This is a little awakeard as I clearly caught them at a bad time as a row was going on in the back room, this was embarassing and more than a little awkward. The young guy serving me was clearly also embarassed as he could obviously hear it too - very awkward.

Excellent Farm shop and butchery with a relaxed atmosphere specialising in home reared rare breed meat that is second to none. The Homemade sausages, home cured bacon, rare breed pork, beef lamb and poultry with regular in season produce such as Venison, rabbit, pigeon, partridge etc are all first class and supplemented by Gary and his teams knowledge. In addition to the butchers, Butts farm also stock locally sourced seasonal vegetebles complete with mud, cheeses, Free range eggs, pies and bread. On Thursdays you can order fresh fish that is delivered on a Friday morning straight from the boat.
Conveniently located just off the A419, Butts Farm Shop is a complete gem of a place and a must for both locals and passers by. A must for all foodies!
