Dorset Dry Cured Streaky Nitrate & Nitrite Free Bacon (200g)
Our nitrate and nitrite free bacon is what we say it is, completely free from nitrites and nitrates. Which means that it will be less pink in colour when you cook it, but will still be absolutely wondrous in any fry up or bacon sarnie.
Nitrite & Nitrate Free Bacon
All of our nitrate and nitrite free bacon comes from our friends at The Real Cure at Hartgrove Farm, near Shaftesbury in Dorset who dry cure all their bacon in very small batches using only salt and muscavado sugar. The bacon is then air dried for a week before gently smoking over smouldering oak chips. The Real Cure use locally sourced, free range heritage breed pork and have received multiple awards from Taste of the West, Great Taste Awards and the British Charcuterie Awards.
We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.

Meet one of our free-range pork farmers, Alice and Julian Newth, Manor Farm, Somerset
Alice and Julian Newth
The Newth’s have been breeding rare-breed British Saddleback pigs at Manor Farm for over 20 years. Working alongside her father Julian, Alice ensures that the pigs are cared for according to the highest standards of animal welfare, roaming and foraging outdoors naturally.
Alice and Julian run the British Saddleback Breeder’s Club that promotes the breeding, rearing and showing of this unique rare breed that produces great tasting, traditional British pork.
We founded the Dorset Meat Company to provide you with the finest grass-fed, outdoor-reared meat, produced sustainably and in harmony with nature. We care about traditional British farming which is why we work with 20 small, family-run farms based in Dorset and Wiltshire that produce really wholesome, natural meat. We believe strongly that small-scale farming is better for the farmer, the animal, the local ecology, and for you, producing exceptionally tasting, ethically reared meat that you can trust completely.
At the Dorset Meat Company, we work with 20 small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire that all work to produce ethically reared, nutritious meat, in a natural growing environment, in harmony with nature. Animals that have been allowed to grow at a natural pace and have not been rushed.
100% Grass Fed
Our ruminant animals enjoy a diet of 100%, pure, natural grass. Which is all they ever eat.
Our local countryside is rich in grassland. “Partly real, partly dream country” is how Thomas Hardy described Dorset. Over 40% of the county is designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the steep ridges and chalk valleys lending the landscape a rugged beauty. Dotted around the Blackmore Vale, small farms raise traditional cattle breeds like Herefords, Aberdeen Angus and Ruby Reds. The areas of clay soil are rich in grass, wildflowers, clover and legumes, the principal food source for sheep and cattle for centuries. It is these natural environments, rich in essential vitamins and minerals, that help to support a wide range of wildlife and insects as an essential element of a vibrant, thriving ecology.
Nature in balance.
