Dear Valued Customers

We are an essential service provider and because of this our doors will stay open during the official lockdown period. We will have reduced trading hours though. Most likely 9am to 5pm weekdays, 9am to 2pm Saturdays and 9am to 1pm Sundays. These may change without prior notice though.

Our staff are risking their health and safety in order to secure your food security during these uncertain times. In light of this we kindly request the following:

1) Leave your children at home when visiting us.
2) We will only allow 1 person per family.
3) Only 30 people at a time will be allowed in the store.
4) Clear red markers are visible at the cashiers. Please adhere to them by not standing closer than the lines permit or touching other clients.

Above all we ask that you RESPECT and APPRECIATE our staff and adhere to the strict hygiene protocols in store. They are implemented for your own safety.

Thank you for your support.

When it comes to buying meat, you’re faced with a lot of choices and a lot of conflicting claims.
And at the end of it all, how can you really be sure of the quality of your meat until you actually sit down and taste it? You can’t be, unless you buy from Country Meat. Here’s why:

We don’t just sell meat; we love meat. We loved it when we were children spending time on the farm, and we love it now. For us, there’s no greater pleasure than sinking your teeth in to a truly great piece of meat.When we set out to to produce meat on our piece of Sernick farm in Kroonstad, Free State, we did so with this goal in my mind – to offer our customers natural, wholesome, great-tasting meat.
