A recent holiday in Italy for Close Leece Farm's founder, Tracey, was the perfect opportunity to sample a wide range of artisanal Italian charcuterie. The experience lead to the creation of the Close Leece Farm Manx Salami; a delicate blend of black pepper and fennel seeds with fine wine. The result is a salami that will not fail to delight, whether eaten with some fresh crusty bread or with a few slices of mozzarella and a drizzle of olive oil.
Winner of a 2 star award at the Great Taste Awards 2018
Great Taste Awards Judge’s comment – "Super looking salami, nice dark meat with good firm texture and an even spread of fat, easy to cut, fruity in flavour with the garlic and fennel both noticeable in flavour. A very easy to eat classic salami”
Handmade on the farm with pork from our pasture raised Rare Breed Tamworth pigs. Presented as a 100g stick, peeled and vacuum packed to ensure freshness from the Isle of Man.
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.
