Our Story

X

We are Andrew & Julie.

Andrew is from the west coast of Scotland - Dunoon
Julie is from the east coast of Scotland - Leven, Fife

"When east meets west - the pies are aye best !!!!!"

From a very young age Andrew longed to be a farmer - spending Summer holidays working on family farms on the Isle of Islay BUT his Dad had other plans for him - he was to carry on in the family butcher shop. That he did and enjoyed running a very busy well established business until taking the plunge to move to the Limousin where now he can be both farmer and butcher - talk about having your "PIE" and eating it!

In Scotland we also had a small holding which provided our shop with free range pork, turkey and other poultry - as well as all our pet ponies llamas rheas monkeys rheas goats dogs etc!

Our beef and lamb was sourced from local farmers who were known and highly thought of by our customers!

Daunting at first - the idea of having our own farm shop has been toyed with for a while but is no longer "PIE In the sky"! Why not combine what you love with what you know best and provide some "Highland hospitality on a plate!" to both Brits and French alike

We do hope you enjoy while we endeavour to do our best to make sure you do!

Most importantly "Thank you for your custom."

Bon appétit

Andrew & Julie .....

Open days / Pie Fests / BBQ'S

Living in the Limousin we all enjoy the luxury of frequent community events where we can integrate with the local community and enjoy the fun laid back healthy atmosphere which drew us here in the first place.

We plan to host such events from time to time:

PIE FESTS / BBQ'S / OPEN DAYS / FARM VISITS
All of which will combine good food, music, banter, fun events, the farm experience & lots more. All to be enjoyed in the beautiful Limousin countryside here on our farm.

We would also be delighted to cater for your own events or local community events - where possible.

Get in touch on the contact page to discuss your special event requirements.

Our Outlook

X

We see MONTYBUTCHER as a novel experience of diversity in farming.

Produce varies from typical British and French to novel Scottish presentations - all prepared from our own animals and presented to you in a way you might not yet have tried!

All our produce is 100% home reared ....

This tiny piece of France has been farmed by us now for 9 years. Having arrived in what could only be described as a French jungle - unfenced, falling to bits, overgrown, deserted for years - we have endeavoured to put it right - with many a hiccups along the way!

After leaving a long established family butcher shop (Est 1965) in Dunoon on the west coast of Scotland to settle here in France we feel the time is right to diversify and share Andrew's butchery/bakery skills with Brits and French alike.

We aim to accommodate both French and Brits tastes and hope to share with you a product range that will be inviting, affordable and most of all TASTY!

For our British customers we hope to give you that wee taste of home that some days we all fancy - the best of both worlds - living in a beautiful country but not giving up your wee bits of home comfort!

Our aim is not to sell products that are seen as an occasional treat BUT wholesome, everyday, affordable food that we can all enjoy without breaking the bank.

No more craving that wee taste of home - MONTYBUTCHER has it all!

No more waiting for friends and family to bring you over your favourites from Britain or searching for equivelants here - we have all your favourites here and they are freshly made daily!

Nothing imported - not frozen - not prepacked - everything 100% fresh !!!!!

To familiarize himself with French cuts of meat Andrew has also worked as a butcher at the abattoir in Confolens. Gaining invaluable experience.

We look forward to seeing you at MONTYBUTCHER!

"SAY AYE TAE A PIE!"

X

The Pie, The Legend.

Scotland's original "fast food" also known as a mutton pie, football pie, tuppeny pie, shell pie and since opening the shop have also heard it called a Jock pie ! 
Traditionally the scotch pie was made from minced mutton - a savoury hand held snack with a cult following. Especially as a half time treat at football matches and a welcome easy lunch for workers.

Our scotch pies have a very generous portion of minced prime lamb with a peppery twist and provide a very filling, wholesome meal - traditionally accompanied with a big dollop of baked beans for a hearty lunch...

The pie shells are made here by Andrew using flour, water and lard. The hot melted lard is added to the flour to form a soft dough mixture which is then made into balls. The balls of pastry mixture are placed in the pie shell machine and the shell is formed by the heated dies of the machine. The pie machine was made by Waddell of Wishaw, Scotland in 1920 and has never changed since - as you can see in the photo this contraption is the old original machine - it took a while to master it but we now have the perfect pie shells! The lard we use is rendered on site from pig fat and we use flour from a local mill.

Typically this pie shell would only contain lamb however we have introduced the following range as a handy quick snack to cater for every taste. 

We hope our ever increasing range will make you say "AYE TAE A PIE!"
All of our scotch pies are pre-cooked and only need reheated - Some are equally as tasty cold.

Scotch pie range - all are 2€ each

Traditional scotch pie - home reared minced lamb with a peppery seasoning.

Curry pie - home reared free range pork or beef in the favourites  chip shop curry sauce, peas and onions.

Macaroni cheese pie - macaroni in a real cheddar cheese sauce in a delicious pastry shell and topped with a slice of tomato.

Mince 'n' Tatties pie - traditional cottage pie with minced beef and onion topped with creamy mashed potato.

Haggis neeps 'n' tatties pie - Burns Supper in a pie shell - layers of home made haggis, mashed turnip and mashed potato. 

The full Monty - breakfast pie - layered with black pudding, baked beans, sausage and topped with pieces of bacon. 

Pizza pie - a tasty twist on the pizza - tomato, cheese, onion and ham - a mini pizza in a pie shell.

Quiche pie - a traditional type quiche made with bacon, onions and cheese - delicious hot or cold.

 


 

PUFF PASTRY PIE SELECTION

The pastry for the following produce is 100% made fresh daily on the premises by us - using locally sourced flour from a nearby mill... 

Our current range is based on our best selling produce from our butcher shop in Scotland before. Puff pastry "pâte feuilletée" is obviously of French origin - we have the pleasure of bringing it back to France for the French to try in a different way - Bon Appetit ! 

Sausage rolls - a generous helping of  steak sausage wrapped up in puff pastry - 1.50€

BRIDIES - a bit like a pastie - full of minced beef, onion and seasoning -a very filling snack - 2€ each

Cheese & Onion puffs - a square of delicious puff pastry filled with cheddar cheese & onion - 2€ each

Mince & onion rounds - a large helping of minced beef and onion encased in puff pastry top and bottom - a good two portions - 3.50€ each 

 


 

STEAK PIES 

Possibly the tastiest fresh ready meal ever - a generous portion of tender beef stew in our own gravy - all sizes available ! As well as the 4 standard sizes we have on offer we can also do steak pies to your own requirements - if you need an extra extra big one or just want it in your own dish then you can bring in your dish and we will fill it and top it with delicious puff pastry!!!! 

All médium, large and extra steak pies are West coast of Scotland style - meaning that as well as the steak there are a few steak sausages on top of the stew - this is not a substitute for the stew but an extra added bonus, the purpose of which is to keep the pastry off the gravy and so stop it going soggy ! Should you prefer you can order a large steak pie without sausages on top !!! The choice is yours .....

INDIVIDUAL STEAK PIE - one person - 2.50€

MÉDIUM - 2/3 people - 7.50€

LARGE - 4 people - 11.50€

XTRA LARGE - 6-8 people - 19.50€ 

(The ultimate desperate dan pie !!!!)

Obviously this is a rough gauge depending on individual appetites ....

 


 

HANDRAISED PORK PIES ... 2€ each 

Our pork pies are made using the same pastry recipe as for the scotch pie pastry. However they are NOT made by a machine - they are formed one by one by hand !
They contain a generous helping of seasoned pork surrounded by a tasty layer of jelly !
