It was our goal from the start to do things differently.

We wanted to hark back to the good old pre war era when intensive farming was unheard of and your butcher would start with a carcase & end with amazing lovingly prepared products.
Before rationing saw farmer needing to produce meat quickly & cheaply & Butcher's needing to make things go further & last longers to fit with the time. Unfortunatley when rationing ended these processes increased, Many of the old ways were put aside, Making products is much easier, quicker & cost effective in large factories where the passion is removed by the use of machines & production lines

We love doing things the hard way (if we can make it we will)  you'll see us preparing all our own sausages from scratch in the shop, not hidden away in some back room. we make all our own bacon, Dry cure our own Gammons & cook them ourselves. We have even build our own smoker so we can do this too. Many of the marinaded product are from our own recipes
