Philip Warren & Son
Our aim has always been to serve the very best meat our fair land has to offer whilst being kind on your wallet. Before opening Blacklock, we travelled up and down the land in our quest for the holy grail. From Yorkshire to Wales, Scotland to Dorset, we tried it all and, with a few more pounds around the waist, stumbled fortuitously on now lifelong friend, Matt Chatfield and father and son, Philip and Ian Warren. Cornwall’s oldest third-generation farmers and butchers, the Warren Family have had one goal since 1880, to breed the very best native and rare breed meat in the world. Philip and Ian care for the Blacklock herds, each one raised sustainably, living long, happy lives on beautiful moors grazing on lush Cornish grass, just as nature intended.
Our Planet Promise
Good Times Matched with Good Deeds
We want to play our part to help build a sustainable future for our planet, which those after us will inherit and leave a positive mark on society and the environment. As well as farming regeneratively as nature intended and being mindful of the way we work and the materials we use, we have partnered with a company called Net Zero Now who help us in a number of ways with reducing our impact, such as investing resources into carbon-reducing Biochar initiatives alongside forest protection and afforestation campaigns that make a tangible, beneficial impact on momma earth.
The Whole Animal
We use the whole animal to make something of everything and increase sustainability. This means we farm less intensively, minimise waste and ensure the highest quality. From skinny chops piled high in an All In to the Sunday Roast (almost as good as Mum’s), this meat always puts a smile on our faces, and we hope it does you too.
