Nicholson’s Butchers Nelson

I recently met up with Faye and Ryan and their two daughters, Isobelle and Amalie at their allotment in Nelson, Lancashire. It was a beautiful sunny day and perfect for a lifestyle photoshoot. They asked for some natural and relaxed photographs to represent them as a family and what they love.

Faye and Ryan are the owners of the well known Nicholson’s Butchers Nelson, located on Railway Street. They bought the shop back in 2008, making the move from Sedbergh in the Lake District to do so and from then on the business has gone from strength to strength. I’ve been a customer of Nicholson’s myself for a numbers of years now and the service they offer is second to none. Offering a vast array of quality meat produce along with excellent pork pies, gift hampers, local cakes and biscuits and a variety of ready to cook products at very good value. One thing I really like about Nicholson’s is they have an online shop, for me it’s a great time saver placing my order online and collecting it from the shop. They even offer a local delivery service or if your not local a courier delivery service - fantastic for Christmas orders and a monthly shop!

Their first website started off as a bit of a hobby for Faye whilst she was a stay at home Mum and since then it’s gone from strength to strength and now they have two well known websites their main website is and their latest website selling gifts hampers and luxury pork pies

In their spare time they take the girls horse riding and also like to spend as much time as possible at their allotment, relaxing and looking after their animals. They have two goats, several ducks and chickens, guinea pigs, a giant rabbit and quail at the allotment and at home they have five dogs, two cats and a parrot. You can see some of them below!

If your local i’d highly recommend you to visit their shop in Nelson. If your not local head over to their website and have a look at what they offer.
