The belly joint of our Tamworth pigs combines delicious Tamworth meat with luxurious creamy fat (which the breed is well known for). This allows us to produce a truly wonderful, traditional, unsmoked Pancetta. Once cooked it delivers just the right amount of crispiness with wonderful flavour. A treat for any culinary creation! From the Isle of Man.

Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – "A very tempting aroma enticing us in! Sweet and deep aroma - and this follows through on the palate. Porky and sweet, the fat and the pork have been cured well and dry aged well.”
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.
