Live – ethical – Delicious
Our live brown crab is collected from the shores of Devon and Cornwall using pots that leave no damage or remnance on the seabed.
It is then bought into Salcombe and refreshed in the beutiful Salcombe ria before being sorted, packed and sent off for delivery straight to your door.
We can supply Cock crabs (male) or Hen crabs (female) at various weights all live and kicking so you can be assured of it’s freshness and quality. Once packed the crabs are cooled for transport to make sure that they don’t get stressed during their delivery.
We can also supply freshly hand picked white crab meat if you don’t want the trouble of steaming and picking your crabs yourself.
Crab meat has such a wonderful and unique flavour that bursts out whether eaten straight out of the shell or picked and used in more complicated dishes.
