Home dry-cured bacon

melt-in-your-mouth bacon with an unparalleled texture and flavour

Our popular bacon products are largely sourced from local North East family-run farms and are traditionally dry-cured and air-dried on-site by our skilled butchers to ensure each rasher is chockful of flavour.

Perfect with a poached egg or a full English breakfast, we pride ourselves on our slowly matured and succulent bacon which crisps up beautifully when cooked. We have a range of products suitable for every occasion, including;

  • Back bacon
  • Middle bacon
  • Streaky bacon
  • Smoked bacon
  • Unsmoked bacon
  • Bacon joints
  • Bacon chops

We also have a variety of luxury and speciality bacon on offer throughout the year. From indulgent black treacle and whisky bacon to sweet and rich maple-cured bacon, our gourmet home-cured meat will take your bacon butty to the next level!

Home dry-cured gammon

Tender and juicy gammon steaks and joints

Gammon is a delicious and healthy alternative to bacon and can be served hot or cold. Our lean and tender steaks are perfect when grilled and served with pineapple, fried egg, chunky chips or seasonal vegetables, while our horseshoe gammon joints can be glazed with honey, boiled and roasted for a decadent Sunday lunch.

Our gammon is cured over several weeks before being hand cut, trimmed and tied expertly in-house, ready to cook and serve at home.
