Smoked streaky bacon
Streaky bacon comes from the pork belly. It has long alternating layers of fat and muscle running parallel to the rind.
Our Iron Age pig bacon is dry-cured and cold smoked and American style meaning it is fattier and saltier than the British traditional style
Iron Age pigs are a distinctive looking crossbreed first developed for a BBC documentary, by combining a Tamworth – one of our least diluted British breeds – and a wild boar produced a pig that had many of the characteristics of early domesticated animals from the Iron Age period. The flavour is very clean and distinctive with really sweet fat.
We source our pork as carefully as we source all of our meats, in that we find animals that have had a natural life where possible also performing vital land management roles such as forest clearing.
Organic is the only standard which offers not only higher animal welfare standards, but also environmental benefits in terms of waste management, residue, pesticides and fertilisers. The Organic standard also guarantees that no GMOs have been used in the feed.
The terms ‘free range’ and ‘outdoor reared’ do not have clear legal definitions and do not necessarily meet our requirements.
We visit every farm we source from to ensure that the highest possible standards of welfare are used throughout the entire life of the animal.
