THE BEST OF BRITISH CHARCUTERIE; THIS IS THE JUICY STUFF... HERE'S WHAT IS NEW!
We just thought we’d jump on to show you all of the fantastic new products which are now LIVE on our website, whilst shining a light on the producers and what makes these artisan meats so special.
Beal’s Farm, East Sussex
Kicking it off with Beal’s Farm, an East Sussex based charcuterie producer creating award-winning cured ham, coppa, chorizo and salami from their own herd of free range Mangalitsa pigs.
The guys at Beal’s really show such a passion and skill for charcuterie in all stages of life; the love and nurture that goes into raising such beautiful pigs is something Beal’s Farm hold highly and is worth supporting.
You can find more about this family run farm and their mangalitsa pigs, here.
This pork spicy chorizo is made from only pork leg, and is based upon a Spanish recipe using the finest Spanish smoked paprika. It has a deliciously deep flavour with a spicy bite to finish.
Lishman’s of Ilkley, West Yorkshire
Next, we get a taste for Yorkshire’s finest! Lishman’s are a family run independent butchers, established by David Lishman for over 30 years now.
Nestled in a town called Ilkley, they support regional farmers who share their commitment to husbandry, welfare, and outstanding quality, by sourcing the majority of their meat from established Yorkshire farms.
It’s no doubt that their knowledge and traditional butchery methods shine through the high-quality meat they produce, and passion and craft skills absolutely run through their veins.
If you’d like to know more about these fantastic butchers you can visit them over on their website, here.
This Yorkshire coppa is cured from the neck (rib eye) of the outdoor reared pork and air dried for at least 6 weeks. Best enjoyed with some bread and cheese, or pan fried or grilled for garnish.
Moons Green Charcuterie, Kent
Owley Farm in the heart of the Kentish Weald is where you’ll find our next British Charcuterie pioneers John Doig and Ian Jones, owners of Moons Green Charcuterie.
Obsessive about the craft they have been pursuing for almost ten years, this exciting pair of charcutiers are best known for their unique spectrum of meats, as well as creating the now ubiquitous Beer Sticks.
They are situated bang in the middle of some of the best livestock farms in the country, they source free range meat of unbeatable quality.

Ian raised the lamb just down the road at Ebony Farm. John added the Moroccan-style lemons to tame the full-flavour of the lamb and give it a gentle but familiar flavour.
Tempus, the gods of time, are multi-award winning charcutiers who butcher, cure, ferment and age their products, finishing them for up to a year in their custom-built ageing room in Weybridge.
This, alongside their technical know-how and meticulous process is something that sets them highly, and their obsessive exploration of flavour really seals the deal.
The guys at Tempus demonstrate a strong commitment to utilising the food-chain correctly. Their responsibility to use animals already in existence is one of the many things which makes them, and all the other producers so special.
