Our headquarters. Our basecamp. Our heartbeat. This facility is where we receive carcasses and do the actual butchery. Like, this is where we cut stuff up. As whole-beast butchers, it is our job to break full carcasses down into various primals, sub-primals and secondary cuts and under this roof you’ll find our cold room, our production areas and our smoking machine. In other words, it’s a full-scale working butchery in the heart of Woodstock.
We are unapologetic about the fact that meat comes from an animal and, as a result, carcasses are visible through window displays. You can also watch our blockmen working, which means at any given time you might catch them making sausages, brining bacon, pressing hamburger patties, cutting steaks or portioning lamb chops. If there is a speciality cut that you want, or if you’d like to hang out and talk to our butchers for a while, this is the shop to visit.
A small retail store is neatly attached to the production facility with a wide range of products. At Woodstock we offer Rosetta pour-over coffee and a simple food menu including our (famous) toasted ham and cheese sandwich.

Palmyra is a small but considered store packed with options. Receiving goods on a daily basis from Woodstock means that a wide range of cuts are always available. Things like rolled porchetta, 30-day dry aged prime rib, house-made beef stock, lamb ribs and fresh chorizo are some examples of what to expect. Over and above the meat, we have a solid lineup of provisions, offering items like free range eggs, various curated olive oils, cookery books and mozzarella di bufala. We invite you to pop in and check out what is on offer for the day, or to place an order which can be cut at Woodstock and delivered here for collection.

This is a unique space, as it sees Frankie Fenner Meat Merchants as part of a bigger offering. We have collaborated with ASH Restaurant and Publik Wine Bar to create a space where you can enjoy a drink, sit down for a meal or simply buy some meat to cook at home. You can also do all of these things and we won't judge. We’ll probably give you a high five, in fact. ASH restaurant has a menu that changes daily, where chef Ash Heeger bases her creations on what meat the butchery has on offer for that week. As a result, you will be exposed to some unfamiliar cuts and very cool cooking techniques. Meanwhile, David Cope from Publik curates and sources wines from small, independent producers. It isn’t a space for fussy, pretentious food - instead, the menu is precise and focused. We take the food seriously but always want to offer it in an inviting and approachable way. Again, if you would like to order meat through Woodstock and collect in town you are welcome to do so.
