Produce: Rare Breed Pork Sausages, Bacon, Pancetta, Air Dried Ham, Coppa, Lomo
One of the smallest farms within our Artisan Network, with one of the biggest accolades “Best British Sausage 2016 – Great British Food Awards”!
On just 12 acres of rolling Pennine moor, 80 rare-breed pigs roam freely and happily in their little slice of paradise.
The British Charcuterie Industry is vibrant, with the emergence of many amazing producers. Porcus is extra special because they don’t buy in their pork, they breed it, rear it and butcher it!
So what is their secret to great tasting pork? Well firstly all their pigs are truly outdoor bred, thriving in the fresh Pennine air and fed a wonderful diet of Beer Mash and grain. Porcus have control from pig to plate, with no compromise and total respect in all that they do, to create exquisite tasting meat.
Their flavoursome charcuterie is cured using traditional methods creating some of the finest air dried hams, coppa and culatello meats which are perfect for the bon viveur.
Sarah Jane (one time successful London architect) is a colourful character, full of humour, and passionate about Porcus produce, (Not always easy in the face of the Pennine climate!)
Along with a hard-working team; Natalia, Fiona, Beth, Jamie and butcher Ian, Sarah Jane has stuck to her ideals and original mission of producing amazingly tasty food and putting Porcus at the top in 10 short years – Their sausage, bacon and charcuterie are genuinely artisan…… truly inspirational!
