About Us

Our background is farming and this makes us different from most butchers, with our customers enjoying meat that is particularly tender. Why? Because we understand how rearing, handling and transporting an animal affects the texture of meat.

Most of the meat we use comes directly from our own farm in Twynholm, just a few miles from the Ballards Butchers shop. We are traditional beef and sheep farmers and our animals benefit from the lush, rich, grassy landscapes that Galloway is famous for.
