Our Butchers

Euan Simpson, Butcher
I come from a background in retail management, but I have always had an interest in food. After joining the butchery I became inspired by Balcaskies whole carcass butchery approach and pasture fed livestock.

Now fully qualified, I enjoy the interaction with customers – both retail and wholesale – sharing the passion for the benefits and quality of Pasture For Life Assured and Organic Certified meat.

I look forward to continuing to develop my knowledge and skills whilst being able to create new products using Fife's seasonal produce.
Romain Fleureau, Butchery Assistant
I joined the butchery in March 2023 with no experience but a strong passion for food and a desire to learn a new set of skills. Euan has trained me since and I am now enrolled to become a qualified craft butcher.

The traditional butchery style of dealing with the whole carcasses is the perfect way to learn how to prepare and offer a top quality product to our customers.

At Balcaskie we are always in contact with the farmer, this gives us the opportunity to see the animals and have access knowledge beyond butchering and it goes both ways.

Brilliant meat, brilliant people.
