The finest meat, deli and drinks the New Forest has to offer.
Our national park is a very special place. Here you’ll find animals free to roam or graze in lush meadows and quality local artisan brands that you won’t find in your supermarket.
We love where we live and want to share it with you.
Why not try New Forest Venison?
Our venison comes from wild deer roaming within the New Forest National Park.
As well as being more flavourful than farm-reared meats, wild venison is usually leaner and more healthy due to the active lifestyle and natural diet of the animal.
The New Forest is renowned for its meat quality and our farms within the national park raise animals in idyllic surroundings. We butcher our meat in-house and know the complete journey from farm to fork.
Our region is home to some exceptional artisan brands that you may not find in your local supermarket. Items are handpicked and regularly updated to ensure you have the very best to use in your kitchen.
Distilleries and breweries have been a secret of the New Forest for many years. Using our local knowledge, New Forest Stores have picked out some exceptional drinks, rich in both flavour and authenticity.
Our fresh meat comes from family run farms within The New Forest.
The animals are reared in idyllic surroundings, free to roam or graze within lush water meadows and grassy fields in a stress free environment.
Nick has been a butcher in and around The New Forest for 28 years.
His local knowledge is second to none, and he only uses farms and suppliers he knows and trusts as custodians of the forest and it’s traditional practices. You’ll find Nick and his apprentice Josh behind the counter at our shop in Burley, called Shappen Stores.
