Our Berkshire Smoked Rind-On Back Bacon is from Free-range Berkshire pigs.
Berkshire pigs are a rare breed of pig originating from the English County of Berkshire. The free-range pigs are allowed to roam around their environment searching for shoots, roots and anything tasty to eat. Best of all the Berkshire pig produces heavily marbled pork. As a result they are so deliciously tasty and consequently very tender.
We traditionally dry cure our Pork for 21 days using the old fashioned salt curing process. We then take the pork and naturally smoke it over oak chips for around 14 hours to give you the subtle smoked taste. There are no colourings, water or chemicals added during any of our curing or smoking processes. Just time and traditional techniques polished over the years. For that reason you end up with the most amazing smoked back bacon.
Therefore this cut is the perfect choice if you are making a bacon sandwich.
Finally, we deliver the products in temperature controlled chilled boxes. Suitable for home freezing on day of receipt, you can pull out a pack of your Berkshire Smoked Rind-On and defrost in just a few hours.
