Bacon Lardons, Unsmoked (250g)
Our dry-cured unsmoked bacon lardons come from our finest Saddleback pork belly, from pigs that have been outdoor-reared on small, family-run farms in Dorset and Wiltshire with the highest standards of animal welfare.
Lardons are a regular feature in French country cooking, adding great flavour to Coq au Vin, Boeuf Bourguignon, in a stew, or fried and added to pasta carbonara.
We like ours in a spinach, goats cheese and tomato salad.

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.
We dry-cure our unsmoked bacon lardons from slow-grown Saddleback pigs in the traditional, time-consuming way. Each cut of pork is hand rubbed with a sea salt based mix to ensure a delicate flavour and then cured for five days. The meat is then matured and air-dried for up to 20 days. This process removes the water from the pork which means that your bacon lardons shrink less whilst cooking and won’t give off any ‘white bits’ in the pan.
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.
