I found their bacon gorgeous, it was tasty without being fatty. You could taste the meat and the smokiness of the smoked variety. Each pack was fresh and well presented, you could tell that only the best cuts had gone into the pack.
Knowing that the pigs had had a good life without being caged has certainly shown me the difference in texture and taste of the meat produced.
