escapades into the countryside but also due to our increasing
interest in healthy eating and a reversion to slow cooked

Boar are a native species and an integral part of the ecology
of any woodland. Our Boar are ethically farmed in 20 acres
of mixed woodland and grasses at the edge of the Cotswolds.
The land has been free from any pesticides, herbicides or
fertiliser since 1990. They are rotated onto fresh ground
throughout the year and forage for their food; this includes
acorns, fungi, cherries and other spoils which all helps to
make up the unique 'Real Boar' flavour.

boar was a huge success. We made terrines, sausages, brawn
as well as roasting the loins, legs etc. Absolutely delicious."

"The packaging was simple and effective and presented the product well. On opening, the salami had a great appearance and rich aroma. Its flavour profile was excellent and the red wine and spices added a real depth and richness to the flavour. The uniqueness of the product was especially interesting. Although the use of wild boar in salami is not uncommon, the fact that these animals are farmed in Britain shows great innovation."
well as using our own boar we also proudly support other farmers
who produce their meat to the same exacting standards as ours.
