Look out for our new Products.

Apple smoked bacon (from time to time) - our own dry cured back or streaky bacon gently smoked over Bramley Apple wood chips.

Cherry smoked dry cured bacon - gently and slowly smoked over local cherry wood chips.

These products are smoked in our own smoker carefully watched over  to ensure that the flavour of the wood enhances the meat without smothering the natural flavour of our pork.

postheadericon Butchery Courses from Downland

Downland are pleased to announce that our butchery classes will start shortly in our new butchery at Melksham.

dp-butchery1

 

Under the instruction of a skilled butcher you will be taught some of the many skills that will turn meat into an interesting and different centrepiece for a meal.

Our first session will last three hours, including a break for questions, hot drinks and to sample Downland Products. We aim to keep the time mostly "hands on" rather than it being just a classroom session. We will provide everything you need like aprons, gloves, knives etc. so you just have to turn up. It will start about 6.30pm on a weekday so you can put into practice your new knowledge over the weekend and surprise your family or guests.

Our first course will include

  • Hygiene
  • Knife skills
  • What to look for when buying meat
  • Recognising cuts of meat
  • Filetting and deboning to get to know how to use a knife correctly

At the end of the session you can have your filleted produce to cook at homedp-butchery2

The first class will cost £70 per head and is limited to a maximum of 6 people so everyone can have personal tuition. For further information and to book call 01225 945011

Following on from this course courses we will hold further sessions to include sausage making, preparing ribs and preparing other meat for cooking especially for barbeques and summertime dining. Later we will concentrate on courses preparing meat for fine dining meals without breaking the bank. You will get a discount for future courses if booked at the end of your first session.

Learning new useful skills will be fun and rewarding on our courses.
