Where do you get bone broth from in the UK

Answered on September 12, 2014

A lot of the butchers aren't keeping bones any more. Apparently they don't see the bones as anything useful. So does anyone have any idea where to get the bones from in the UK?

I'm so juvenile. It was a real struggle not to pretend to be aghast you're eating *actual* dog bones. ;)

Hmm. I think I need to educate myself about the meat stocks in the supermarkets. Thanks for this.

Cool, I think I might go on a tour of the local butchers today then.

Thanks. Do you have a link to one of those sites? I know there are places like Planet Organic, but they only deliver fresh stuff to people inside of London...I'm just outside :(

Hi Jamie, Paleo seems to been gaining a following in NZ. Very cool

Abel and Cole now sell beef bones and chicken carcasses for a few pounds.

I usually get mine from the farmer's market - if I call ahead they will bring me anything from chicken carcasses to pigs trotters, and usually it's either free or something ridiculous like ??1 for a huge bag.

Make friends with your butcher or farmer!

I've been getting bones from my local butcher here (South West UK). It's all grass-fed meat. So far they've been free, but I live very close and buy all my meat from them despite the high prices, so perhaps that's why.

I've been making tons of bone broth. It is absolutely gorgeous in basically any savoury recipe that requires liquid.

I ordered on and Tuesday just got a delivery today (Thursday) of wild venison burgers, organic bacon and a kg of beef bones from Abel and Cole - check out their website its great! The beef bones were £1.50 but I had to spend at least a tenner and since I'd be buying meat anyway it wasn't a problem. This weekend will be BONE BROTH TIME!

Word of warning - the wild venison burgers contain breadcrumbs and gluten - boooo! I ate them anyway but I won't be ordering them again.

Just save the bones from meat you already cooked

Aside from looking around more butchers until you find one that does stock bones, you can build up a reasonable stock of bones by cooking joints repeatedly and saving the bones from them. Also, my local Morrisons sells bones, but for a fairly ridiculous price (given that my old butcher would give them to me for free).

They might not have them on demand, but if you ask they might be able to save some for a pick up later in the day. Most butchers do a lot of their cutting early in the day and toss stuff as they work if it isn't needed.

I made friends with the butcher at the local farm shop and he saves the best bones for me. In return I give him some of the bone broth. It's a fair exchange and no money involved.

All the butchers in our town will give you bones if you ask. They usually ask you to put a donation in the charity box.

I'm not in the UK, but NZ, and the butcher has a bag of dog bones, in their meat for pets section - I buy them and use them for broth

There are many sites in the UK now selling organic meat for delivery. The best ones also do bones, fat trimmings, liver etc. It's not actually that expensive either, once you're eating paleo and therefore eating less.
