Nduja has seen a surge in popularity over recent years, particularly as an ingredient to bring spice and colour to the finest modern cuisine. Close Leece Farm is well placed to make Nduja as the quality of the fat is paramount – and there is no better fat than that from a happy Tamworth!
We cut no corners and source our spices from the home of Nduja - Spilinga in Calabria. The result is a spicy spreadable charcuterie – a surprise to many, but a treat to all. Perfect with toasted ciabatta and a glass of Barolo. Handmade on the farm with pork from our pasture raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs.
Winner of a 2 star award at the Great Taste Awards 2018
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – "A very good looking Nduja with a mature aroma and yet a soft and yielding paste. The meat has some wonderful texture, there is a warming pimenton growing on the palate and a sweet note which balances the heat. A great long finish and a peak of spice lasting long afterwards”.

About the Producer
Close Leece Farm is situated in the west of the Isle of Man. We specialise in making award-winning artisan charcuterie, handmade on the farm from our herd of pasture raised rare breed Pedigree Tamworth pigs and native Manx Loaghtan lambs. Tracey Ridgway, our founder, has ensured her core values - protection of rare breeds, the highest possible animal welfare standards and minimising our impact on the environment - are at the centre of everything we do.
We make our charcuterie by hand on the farm, using the latest techniques to maintain the highest quality standards, but with an eye to traditional charcuterie making. We spare no effort in producing the very best charcuterie and source the finest ingredients and best cuts of meat to ensure premium quality products.
Our amazing charcuterie has won us many awards. Amongst these, every one of our 10 core charcuterie products, with the exception of our Thermonuclear Chorizo (a recent addition), has achieved a Great Taste Award, including a coveted 3 star award for our Manx Chorizo.
