The family have been trading from the current location in Gerrards Cross since 1970 and are still actively involved in the day-to-day running of the business with Paul Fisher taking over the reigns from his father, Bill, in 2008 and converting Fisher’s Supermarket into Fisher Butchers in 2012.

In the shop, master butcher Dave Marshall leads a team of Peter, Jackie, Monika, Don and Davin – and recently Paul Fisher has been encouraging the team to get involved in creating innovative ‘Fisher own brand’ products. Jackie specialises in making piccalilli chutney, Monica in meringues, and Davin who is from South Africa has been responsible for making and sourcing Biltong, a South African dried meat snack for chewing.

Fisher Butchers trimmed rack of lambDave Marshall has been involved in the butchery industry from age 16, and previously worked for Fishers at their production factory at Watford, and prior to that at Smithfield market. Fishers believes in old-fashioned butchery techniques, where the butcher has a personal relationship with the farmer, working as a partner. Meat is hung in the traditional way, on the bone, for a minimum of 30 days. Dave has been a member of the Meat Federation for over 20 years, and was the London President for 4 years of this.

For quality and traceability reasons, Fisher’s beef has come from the same company and farms in Scotland for 30 years.  Pork comes from Gloucester – from woodland pigs foraging on the open countryside – and lamb comes from Gloucester, Devon or Scotland.  The relationships established over the years mean that Fisher Butchers knows the name of the farmer and receive products with fully traceable batch numbers to ensure that nothing other than premium quality meat is sold.

In the case of Fisher Butchers’ best beef mince and some special-price packs of sausages, certain prices are lower than the supermarkets, with other superior cuts being in some case only slightly higher, but in all cases fairly priced to reflect the quality.

Fisher Butchers also offer a delivery service for orders over £100.
