Bacon Joints

Our Bacon Joints come in two ways, the popular Collar Bacon Joint and our leaner Fore End Bacon Joint, both are available now!

Wiltshire Bacon Joints

You can buy two types of bacon joints online from our British outdoor-reared pigs. The popular Collar Bacon Joints and our leaner Fore End Bacon Joints. Both available smoked and unsmoked.

Collar bacon joints are from the top of the shoulder or neck and made up of many muscles, plenty of marbling and certainly plenty of flavours. Fore end bacon joints are from the lower part of the shoulder of the pig including the first part of the front leg. Sometimes referred to as the cheap end although we don’t know why as after we have trimmed and cured this is an excellent bacon product, slightly leaner than the collar but equally full of flavour.


About Bacon Joints

Bacon joints are a great alternative to gammon joints. Bacon joints are from the front end of the pig and carry more marbled fat which is in between the muscles or ‘intramuscular’ to get technical. This produces tender, moist joints, full of flavour. Easy to cook bacon joints, no need to pre-soak and can be frozen if you wish.
