Handmade on the farm with pork from pasture-raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs.
Having been avid fans of European charcuterie for over 20 years we have sampled almost every variation available. After much experimentation, the production technique and blend were perfected.
Only the finest ingredients were considered worthy, from the wine to the various Pimentons. The result is a satisfyingly spicy cured meat, enhanced by the succulent fat of the rare breed Tamworth pigs.
Perfect with light-bodied red wines. However the team at Close Leece Farm always prefer a glass of Rioja!
Sold as a 160g stick, peeled and vacuum packed to ensure freshness.
Ingredients – Tamworth Pork, Sea Salt, Pimenton paprika, Garlic, Wine, Demerara sugar, Oregano, Cayenne, Dextrose, Curing Salt, Vitamin C
Close Leece Farm - Manx Chorizo - 160g
Tracey and Steven bought Close Leece Farm in 2009.
Tracey was the driving force in getting the farm up and running again, there was a lot of work needed (fences, drainage etc.). Tracey imported some rare breed Golden Guernsey goats and chickens. Eventually these were joined by rare breed Tamworth pigs, and Manx bees.
From the beginning the idea was to give the animals the best welfare standards possible, and combine this with the best feed, to make the highest quality products possible.
Close Leece Farm produce an amazing range of charcuterie, and we are very excited to introduce four of their products to the store (with more to come over the next few months). The products by Tracey, Steven, Colin and Paula, show what can be achieved when you treat your livestock with respect and love...and of course, when you also possess a big dose of talent.
