Saunderson's Local Beef

John Saunderson is pleased to reassure all his customers, old and new, that all beef sold is his shop is 100% traceable and is bought live from St Boswells Livestock Centre in the heart of the Scottish Borders.

For generations, Saunderson's has been selling nothing but the best and that tradition continues today with prime Scottish Borders beef.

When you buy your beef from Saunderson's you know you are getting top quality meat and why not try one of our beef recipes as winter recedes and spring arises?
