RJ Balson began in 1515, just six years into the reign of Henry VIII. Since then, dozens of family members have passed their butchery skills down through 25 generations, making us Britain’s oldest family business.
We received the Family Business Award at a wonderful awards ceremony held at the Bournemouth Internation Centre
