Based in Raglan, Monmouthshire, NS James are one of the oldest independent butchers in Wales. Established in 1959 we supply both the wholesale trade, award winning chefs, local institutions and our all important shop customers.

From our award winning shop we sell home-killed meats, including rare breeds, all sourced from the locality with no animal having travelled more than 20 miles, fresh local vegetables, free range eggs and our own range of sauces and condiments.

Over the years NS James have won a number of accolades including Welsh retailer of the year & countless victories at agricultural shows. We are the only butcher in Monmouthshire to achieve the status of Rare Breeds Specialist and the first organisation in Wales to be awarded the designation. In 2007 we won first prize in the the prestigious Wales TrueTaste awards for our own recipe, home-made faggots - pictured opposite.

We regularly support local events with our catering trailer, selling our award winning faggots, burgers, sausages and steaks.
