Staffordshire butcher loved by Hairy Bikers best in Midlands

Staffordshire can lay claim to the Midlands' best butcher - for a second successive year. Paul Shum Family Butchers has been crowned 'champion butcher' for the Midlands by the Countryside Alliance.

The business was featured on last year's Hairy Bikers' Christmas special. Now owners Paul and Catriona Shum are preparing to collect their Midlands award and remain in the running for the national title.

Paul Shum Family Butchers started just five years ago in a small, converted barn on a farm on the outskirts of Yoxall. It has since expanded and now boasts a delicatessen counter and a dedicated kitchen.

Paul said: “I have a fantastic team around me and I am very grateful to them all – particularly John Randall who has been with me since day one. Most importantly this award reflects our loyal customer base who voted for us and helped us to win.”
