Who are we?
We're not just big Foodies, food is our passion. It is our life, our hobby and our career.
Both of us - that's me, Dave and Paul my great buddy - are experienced chefs with a pretty good background, well we think so. I trained at Le Manoir and Paul has an extensive repertoire behind him...(yes we have been around a while, before the jokes).
Both of us are always looking for different ways to share our passion and demonstrate how great British food really is. So when the opportunity came along to continue the fantastic Charcuterie business that our neighbours Sarah and John had set up at Parsonage Farm, we couldn't have been more excited.
With heads bubbling with ideas as to how we could do things, The Charcuterie at Parsonage Farm was on its way.
We can't wait for you to be part of the next chapter...
Where would we be without...
Creating great products, in our world means sourcing and using the best quality produce we can find. We really believe that animal welfare comes first. There is no doubt in our minds that those loved and organically reared animals make all the difference.
We will go out of our way to find the right thing, we have been known to drive miles to get the perfect flavour!
But we prefer to keep it local if we can.
Friends mean everything to us
Even though for now, we won't be farming our own pigs we will be buying animals reared with the passion, care and welfare that one would expect from a traditional small holding.
One of our best friends at Yellowdoor Cottage (a small holding in Shurton, just outside Bridgewater) will be supplying us, together with Oaktrack Farm Charlton Down.
But we have lots of other great producer friends that help with some of the other flavours that go into our cured meats.
If you're local and think you have something that might excite us, drop us a line we're really friendly.....
without giving all of our secrets away..........
Like all good producers we have our secret recipes and whilst we stick to the staples, our flavours and range are evolving.
We do as much as we can by hand as this allows us to monitor every stage of the process and ensures that we get the best flavours every time.
