Ceres Butchers

Locally Sourced Meat

We are the proud owners of Ceres Butchers in Cupar at 8 Main Street in Ceres, Fife. Located just 5 miles from our base at Downfield Farm near Ladybank we sell our own Scotch beef, lamb and Stagison venison in the shop. Along with locally sourced pork and freshly made haggis, pies and puddings too.

About Us

Running for 12 Years!

John Hutchison and his team at Ceres Butchers had been providing local people and businesses with fresh, quality meat for twelve successful years. When John retired in March 2019, Bob and Jane Prentice of Stagison took over ownership of the butcher shop. This is a great extension of our business based at nearby Downfield Farm, where we farm and process our own meat, and offer abattoir, butchery and meat processing services.

We have kept on all staff members of Ceres Butchers. And David Noble, who has been a butcher with Ceres for over ten years, is our new Shop Manager. We now sell our field-to-fork venison, Galloway beef and Scotch lamb in the shop. We also supply pork from local meat suppliers A & R Paton of Greenhill Farm in Falkirk (Bob’s sister Jean and her family).

Our Plan

Supplying Quality Products

Our plan is to continue supplying top quality products from our new butchers, sourcing all meat as close to home as we can. Including native breed beef from our grass-fed Galloway herd, with as much of it coming from our own farm as possible. We’ll keep on producing delicious pies and puddings on the premises. Delighted to serve the people and businesses of Fife and be part of a fantastic close-knit local community.
