“Just a note of huge thanks. My son received his birthday treat package today in Salford and was really delighted. Beautiful produce and wonderful service.”

Sue Whitbread January 2024

“I received from … the most delicious side of smoked salmon, sliced better than any I have ever come across before, it was so easy to serve. And the packaging was equally superb, it ensured arrival in perfect condition. Brilliant product and service, thank you.”

Philip Prettejohn, February 2024

“Happy New Year! My family were more than thrilled with the Christmas hamper. I had another thank you from them today. You supplied a ham for my 80th celebration last year. It was received so well, some guests returned for a third helping. Thank you for your attention to detail, using local products and good wishes for this year.”

Margaret Hughes Jan 2024

Freshest Produce from Black Mountains Smokery

Fresh Produce

Our products are sourced with care, freshly prepared and vacuum-packed. This means they are suitable for home-freezing without loss of flavour or texture, with the exception of Smokey Jo’s Pâtés.

They should otherwise 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 shelf life to our customers as possible.

Products and Service; Christmas Fair


Our branded and recyclable gift packaging in the form of beautiful sleeves and cartons brings a sense of our surroundings and makes every one of our award-winning products worthy of being gifted, however big or small.  Our produce is otherwise kept to a minimum to reduce the cost to you and to minimise its environmental impact; simply packaged in smart but simple gold vacuum packs.  The quality of our range of luxury foods is in the eating!

All orders are dispatched in food-safe insulated outer packaging with ice to ensure your order reaches you in perfect condition. Each parcel carries a label indicating that the contents are perishable and the date they should reach a refrigerator, which is a maximum of 48 hours depending on weather conditions.  Please try to reuse the liners and enjoy them and the ice packs for your own picnics or re-purpose them. Click here for ideas!  In the past, we supplied return sacks for the liners but this costs more in carbon than re-use.  Please feel free to return foil liners to us if you have collected enough of them to make it worthwhile sending back.

The packaging of our larger hampers, (gourmet boxes, feasts, and larders) is either reusable or recyclable.

We are always striving to improve our packaging in terms of sustainability and eco-friendliness. Our current offerings reflect what options are available to us as a small company but you can expect to see compostable vacuum bags in the future.

Provenance & Sustainability

We take 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.

We purchase only premium grade, sustainably farmed salmon from Bakkafrost 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. Our cooked ham and dry-cured bacon are produced from outdoor bred pigs. Welsh Dragon Pork Sausage is made by our local butcher in Crickhowell. Welsh Cheddar is sourced locally from the Blaenafon Cheddar Company and our Welsh cheeseboard sourced from all over Wales.

I just wanted to thank you for both delaying our order by a day so that the smoked trout could be included and then arranging the new delivery day to suit us.  Great service!     Tony Walters – March 2024
