Fannie Bay Gourmet Meats

Ken and Maria Purvis run the best butcher’s shop in the Territory.  There is this myth that this shop is expensive and to be honest, I don’t think it is any more expensive than buying your meat at Woolworths or Coles – just the quality is far superior.  The team of butchers here provide good, old fashioned service and if you are preparing a special dinner, are always ready to help out with providing that special cut of meat.  I have a male friend who swears by their New York cut of scotch fillet, my son’s godmother buys his sausages especially from Fannie Bay Gourmet Meats and we love these chicken parcels with a cheesy stuffing.  Once you buy your meat from here, you won’t be able to stop – even if it is out of the way!

UPDATE:  I hear this great butcher shop is up for sale – over the $1 million mark!

Ken and next gen Len – this is a butcher shop well worth the travel – even from Tiwi.

The meat is excellent, the dressings perfect, and Ken even grows his own goats now!
Expense – could easily spend as much in Coles or Woolies with naught to show for the quality.

Although your sausages are tasty, we would love them a little larger.
