Our Service

Based in the picturesque harbour town of Stromness in the Orkney Islands and established in 1876 by Adam Flett, we are traditional butchers with five generations of skill now continued by John and Janette Park.

We are proud to continue the tradition of quality and personal service.  Free deliveries round Stromness has evolved from the push bike to a refrigerated van. Just phone in your order.

Our experienced team of staff are happy to give advice on the right cut of meat for a special occasion or recipe and how to cook it.  We enjoy discussing food, and helping you to achieve what you are aiming for, good food is our passion!

We know the farmers from which we source our renowned Orkney beef and other quality meats. They apply high standards of animal husbandry to produce the finest animals, from which we select the best at the local mart.  They do so sustainably, preserving our beautiful environment for generations to come.

E Flett Butcher Ltd prides itself in selling local meat produced on Orkney Farms, we know where all our meat comes from.  You will find the names of the current suppliers on a notice board at the end of the veg stand.
