You’ll be hard pushed to find a wider selection of meat boxes than Donald Russell’s and the meat is melt-in-the-mouth, which explains the royal warrant and multiple awards.
The variety depends on what’s been caught that day, but expect something along the lines of scallops, clams, wild black mussels, oily fish fillets, filleted flat fish and white fish fillets.
There’s enough here to feed a full household for some time, with a lamb noisette joint, bacon, mince, chicken legs, diced venison, sausages and more. The venison is particularly tender, whilst the mince leaves no trace of fat.
Feed the Family
This will ensure your freezer is nice and full, with bacon, thin pork sausages, a gammon joint, beef burgers, a cooked chicken and piri piri pork steaks. There’s even a pork and leek pie for when you can’t be bothered to cook and eggs to complete a morning fry-up.
This one, containing the likes of chops, sausages, beef mince, steak and chicken breasts, is brilliant if you don’t have the time or inclination to cook large joints of meat or you don’t want to overload your freezer.

If you’re a seafood lover and haven’t discovered this company, you haven’t lived. Delivering the freshest of fresh goodies from Cornwall to your door, this has cooked, cleaned lobsters, six cooked crevettes, two dressed crabs and a mountain of prawns.
A box of Autumnal goodies fresh from the field. Packed with flavour, but typically lower in fat, you get wild pigeon breasts, rabbit legs, diced game, jumbo quail, whole guinea fowl and red deer venison steaks.
This is a carnivore’s dream, which includes a roasting joint, seasonal cuts, mince, sausages, bacon and chicken thighs. If you order a box as a regular order, there are lots of great benefits including cashback, wine vouchers and regular free samples, recipes and more.
Shropshire might not be the first place you think of to buy fish from, but this company calls in the catch of the day from various coastlines, meaning they offer great variety and it’s fresh. And they only weigh the fish after they’ve trimmed and boned it.
Field & Flower is run by practising farmers based in Somerset. They allow you to create your own bespoke regular box, although they have plenty of their own suggestions too, including this great selection of different cuts that are truly delicious.
