WEBSITE OF THE DAY - Pipers Farm

Vegetarians can turn away now. Today, we're all about the meat.

With Christmas around the corner, many households will be starting to think about what to serve over the festive period. Do you go very traditional and have goose? A nice topside of beef, maybe? Or stick to the nation's favourite and have turkey? And then, where to buy it?

You can go to a supermarket for value and convenience, but in my experience, meat from a traditional butcher just tastes better. And you also know that, as a general rule, you'll have a better idea of where the animal came from and how it was treated.

If that's what's important to you, then you can't go far wrong with  www.pipersfarm.com. They're a family-run farm in Devon who provide some of the best meat available anywhere in the country. It's better than organic - all their livestock is reared naturally to maturity and without any chemical enhancement or genetic jiggery-pokery. It's just 100% natural, unadulterated meat.

They've got the lot too - from the traditional roasting birds and joints to their "Simplest Turkey" - perfect for the chef who prefers to spend Christmas morning with a glass of something warming, rather than slaving over a hot stove.

You can order your meat by the number of portions you need and, if you order before 4pm, they can deliver it the next day anywhere in the UK.

Last orders for Christmas are on 21 December, so you've got a bit of time to browse through their full selection and get just what you need.

The only person who isn't going to like this site is my local butcher.
