Here at Peelham we have developed a distinctive and multi-award winning range of organic charcuterie which we have been making from our free-ranging pigs, sheep and beef on our organic farm for the last 15 years. We have adapted centuries old European methods to produce an authentic British charcuterie. Air-dried salamis and hams are slowly cured in the natural air-flow of our on-farm curing facilities. Our salamis are made in natural casings with our own sea-salt based cure without the need for a lactose-based starter cultures, No flavour enhancers, No cure accelerators, No pre-mixes, No artifical emulsifiers. Lactose and Gluten-free. A truly 'free-from' and gluten-free UK charcuterie.
