Fresh Produce

Fresh produce from Black Mountains Smokery

Our products are sourced with care, freshly prepared and vacuum-packed. We do not freeze any products at the smokehouse. This means they are all suitable for home-freezing without loss of flavour or texture. Alternatively they should be kept refrigerated at or below 3°C and should always be consumed within 3 days of opening.

The shelf life of our food varies from 10 and 28 days depending on the particular product. It helps us greatly to receive orders with some notice so that we can plan our production to meet delivery needs. This means that we can pass on as much product life to our customers as possible.

Packaging

Jo and Jonathan Carthew 2017Last Christmas we launched our new gift packaging in the form of beautiful     sleeves and cartons which we hope bring a sense of our surroundings and make every one of our award winning products worthy of being a gift, however big or small.  Our produce is otherwise packaged in smart but simple gold vacuum packs. Our packaging is kept to a minimum to reduce the cost to you and to minimise its environmental impact. The quality of our range of luxury foods is in the eating!

Orders are generally dispatched in insulated outer packaging. Each parcel carries a label indicating that the contents are perishable and the date they should reach a refrigerator, which is a maximum of 48hours dependant on weather conditions.

The packaging of our larger hampers, (gourmet boxes, feasts and larders) is either re-usable or recyclable. Please feel free to return the insulated liners of these boxes to us for re-use or enjoy using them for your own picnics.

 

Provenance & Sustainability

We take great pride in knowing the exact provenance of everything we buy. We source our fresh foods with great care from quality UK suppliers only and process them at our own smokehouse.

Black Moutnain Smokery - sustainable food & smoked fish and poultry

We purchase only premium grade, sustainably farmed salmon from Shetland and the west coast of Scotland. The salmon are fed a diet of high quality fish meal and fish oils derived from wild caught small fish, such as capelin, which they would eat in the wild. They are reared in high currents enabling them to swim and shoal as they would in the wild producing lean, healthy salmon perfect for smoking. Top quality salmon farmed in harmony with the environment helps protect precious and scarce Wild Salmon by reducing demand on wild stocks.

We do not offer wild salmon or eel in our range as these are no longer sustainable unless line caught by individual fishermen.

Our sea fish – haddock, mackerel and kippers - are all North Sea sourced and considered sustainable catches under Marine Conservation (MCS) recommendations.

We use only UK Farm Assured (Red Tractor) chicken and duck. Gressingham Duck is a unique breed of duck, renowned by top chefs for its succulent meat and fantastic gamey flavour. Welsh Dragon Pork Sausage is made by our local butcher in Crickhowell. Welsh Cheddar is sourced locally from the Blaenafon Cheddar Company and our new Welsh cheeseboard sourced from all over Wales.
