Potato salad will never be the same again!

    Almost two centuries ago, in 1828, the Woodall family began producing and innovating in quality British pork. Their products feature original family recipes and smoking techniques spanning eight generations. While farmhouse air drying was largely becoming a lost tradition in Britain, Woodall’s continued to hand down this age-old skill from one generation to the next through their family of butchers. From the Titanic to Concorde, their excellent cured hams have been revered and enjoyed for over 150 years.
