How to Buy from Buttle Farm?
And it is not about copying the Europeans – the Buttle Farm approach is that quality matters, that flavour, texture and most of all, top quality pork are the essential measures of a product. Producing in small batches, Robert uses only Buttle Farm pigs - traditional rare breed animals, with excellent quality lean meat and flavoursome fat - that have lived their whole lives outdoors, creating a product unlike any other. Each breed has its own characteristics that make it an individual product and everyone will have their favourite!
It’s all about dry cure bacon that browns and crisps in the pan without that unappealing puddle of water, cut a little thicker to make top drawer sandwiches; traditional brine-cured Wiltshire hams to make wonderful centrepieces for a family meal; tasty lardons or pancetta cured with juniper and bay as ideal ingredients for adding flavour to a sauce or casserole; meaty, flavoursome salamis made from prime cuts of meat carefully trimmed and mixed with hand diced back fat. Simple seasoning with black pepper and a splash of red wine allows the flavours of the meat to shine through; rows of hams air-drying.
Don't take our word for it - why not come and visit - meet the pigs, taste the products and find out for yourself!
