About Botting's Butchery

Botting's Butchery is in its fourth generation in Balclutha. Just like his Great Grandad, Craig Botting is an old school butcher who believes in doing things the old fashioned way, which means giving his customers friendly, personalised service and fresh, top quality New Zealand-raised meat. 

There's over 80 years of experience behind the counter at Botting's. Come in and see for yourself what makes us the best butchery in Balclutha.

Craig Botting, Owner

Craig is a fourth generation butcher whose family has owned Botting's Butchery for over 85 years. He learned butchery from his Dad after school and started his apprenticeship at 15, before becoming a qualified butcher at 18. Craig enjoys the variety of work he does and has continued the traditions his Great Grandad started years ago.

Craig has been married to Tracey since 2002 and they have two children. In fact, that makes their daughter, Hannah, and son, Kurt, the fifth generation to help out in the shop after school. Craig plays indoor bowls in the winter, fishes in the summer and competes in hose running with the Balclutha Fire Brigade.

Dennis Low, Butcher

Dennis started his apprenticeship at Botting's Butchery in 1980 and became a qualified butcher four years later. He isn't the only Low to have worked at Botting's - both his Dad and brother worked there as well. Dennis says he likes interacting with the customers and the variety of work. 

Dennis stays busy outside of work with twin daughters and as a volunteer firefighter. He also enjoys biking, gardening and baking.
