A Hampshire company that produces burgers made of meat from farm animals grazed on chemical-free pastures is set to dish them up at a new-style restaurant in Southampton.

Houghton-based Chalk Valley Ltd is behind a ‘fast-casual dining burger and hot dog restaurant’ in the city’s London Road and it’s due to open on Thursday.

Bosses say Chalk Valley Burgers restaurant, which will create around a dozen jobs, is a cross between the fast food and casual dining formats.

Chalk Valley’s founder Will Buckley, whose wife Sarah-Jane Fairey has invested what he described as a “considerable” amount of cash into the restaurant project, said meat used to make the burgers was being resourced in Hampshire and Wiltshire.

This includes beef from a commercial herd of 60 north Devon cattle and lamb from a flock of 150 sheep on Chalk Valley’s own 1,100 acre Bossington Estate near Stockbridge, buffalo meat from Dagan and Jessy James Manor Farm at Broughton and pork from Ginger Piggery at Boyton near Warminster in Wiltshire.
