Discover Our Proud Heritage

Founded in 1959 in Barrowford, Beech’s Butchers has a reputation for supplying the finest quality, locally sourced meat and produce to the people of Lancashire.

For the past 60 years, we’ve been proud to supply our customers with delicious meat, award-winning home made sausages, locally sourced wine and beer and much more.

Along the way we’ve managed to create history: opening a second shop in Wilpshire and a third shop in Bamford.

It’s been quite the journey, and we invite you to learn about our proud heritage with this timeline.
