Ham, Free range Tamworth dry cured ham - unsmoked

Regular price £27.00

Unit price per 


Un-smoked dry cured ham produced from the herd of free range rare breed Tamworth and Gloucestershire Old Spots pigs we raise on our farm. Our Pheasants Hill Farm free range dry cured ham is trimmed and boned and supplied off the bone. We use a low salt cure (50% less salt than other cures) so we do not recommend soaking overnight. As the hams are produced by old fashioned dry-curing they should be cooked by the traditional method of poaching in a liquid.

Storing meat and poultry

Open tab


Your order may contain both fresh and frozen items.  


Frozen items are marked with a ‘Best Before’ date of 365 days from the date of packing. Please ensure you put frozen items in your freezer immediately your package is delivered, and store them frozen until you are ready to cook them. Once thawed or defrosted previously frozen items have a ‘Use By’ date of 12 hours and must be cooked within 12 hours. Do not leave previously frozen items in a refrigerator for several days after thawing – they will not be safe to eat and should be discarded. Previously frozen items can be cooked and then refrozen for example, frozen mince can be defrosted, cooked and then frozen as e.g. Shepherds’ Pie or Bolognese Sauce.


Fresh items are marked with a ‘Use By’ date of several days (the length of which varies depending on the type of product – minced items with no preservative have a 2 day shelf life, fresh chicken has a 3 day shelf life, sausages or burgers containing preservatives have a 5 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, beef steaks have a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, bacon has a 14 day shelf life in an unopened vacuum pack, but 4 days shelf life only once the pack is open).  Fresh meat and poultry should be stored in a refrigerator set to the lowest setting (2 degrees Centigrade) and should be cooked before the ‘Use By’ date on the pack. Once cooked fresh items can be frozen and stored in a freezer.  All fresh items can also be frozen at home if they are put in your freezer immediately your package is delivered. 

Product weights

Weight of meat cuts & poultry

We cut  meat as accurately as possible, but as this is a natural product the weight of the product supplied may vary slightly from the weight ordered. It is impossible for the butcher to be absolutely precise when cutting meat to size and poultry weights vary slightly from week to week depending on the exact age of the birds when killed.  Customers who have paid in advance online will not have to pay more if they are delivered or collect a heavier product than than purchased, but we will not make a refund if a product is less than 10% lighter than that prepaid online


How much meat should I order?

Open tab

Here is a general guide  - based on average portions.

Turkey - allow approximately 1.5 lbs (675 g per person). For turkeys under 14 lb allow approximately 2 lb (900 g) per portion as the bone to meat ratio is higher for smaller birds.

Goose - allow 2 lbs (900 g) per portion. The biggest geese are only about 11-12 lbs (approx 5.5 kg) so if you need to feed more than 6 people you will need 2 geese.

Chicken (whole, on the bone) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

Duck - allow 1 lb (450 g) portion.

Pheasant - 1 pheasant feeds 2 people.

Guinea Fowl - 1 guinea fowl feeds 4 people.


Ham, raw. Order 8 oz (225 g) per portion. This will give you 4 oz (110 g) of cooked ham per portion. Ham loses approximately 1/3 to 1/2 its weight in the boiling process, so if you need 2 kg of cooked meat, you should order 4 kg of raw ham.

Meat on the bone (e.g. Rib Roast) - allow 1 lb (450 g) per portion.

Meat, boned (e.g. Rump roast/Topside Roast/Boned Pork Loin) - allow 8 ounces (225 g) per portion.

Meat boned for casserole (e.g. venison casserole pieces) allow 4 oz (110 g) for a casserole with equal vegetable ingredients e.g. mushrooms, onions, carrots. If the casserole meat is just poached in wine, allow 8 oz (225 g) per portion.

Product may be fresh or frozen

Open tab

All our meat products (excepting eggs and skincare) may be sent out fresh or frozen, and this varies for each product on a daily basis .  Whether a product is sent out fresh or frozen will depend on the stock situation on the date of shipment and on the shelf life of the individual  product. Mixed boxes may consist of both fresh and frozen items.  In mixed boxes fresh items are sent in a bag marked 'fresh items' and frozen items are sent in a bag marked 'frozen items' .

If you do not want this item as a frozen product please put it into your basket as usual but put a note in the 'NOTES TO VENDOR' box on the checkout - just say 'NO FROZEN PRODUCTS PLEASE'.  When we prepare your order we will leave out any items which are only in stock as frozen items on the day your order is shipped or collected and we will refund you for the items which we cannot supply as fresh items on that day.

(Please note our FREE DELIVERY TO NORTHERN IRELAND AND REPUBLIC OF IRELAND OFFER only applies if the order shipped is over £100 so if removal of frozen items from the order reduces the value of your order below £100 we will not be able to deliver your order free of charge.)
