Euan Simpson - Butcher
I come from a background in retail management, but I have always had an interest in food. The opportunity arose for me to follow my dream and I joined Butchery at Bowhouse as a butchery assistant working with Sophie Cumber. As I was introduced to the ethos behind the butchery, and the Balcaskie Estate, my interest in food became a passion for whole carcass butchery using the exceptional produce provided by the estate. Now fully qualified, I get to live my dream every day. 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 meats produced here on the estate. Not only is there a noticeable difference in the quality and flavour of the meat, but also a benefit to the environment due to the regenerative agriculture techniques used and low food miles - from “birth to block”. I look forward to introducing traditional, whole carcass, butchery and the ethos behind the estate to as many people as possible. And also continuing to increase my own knowledge and skills while being based on a beautiful estate in the East Neuk of Fife.
