Westnewton Artisan Charcuterie’s Amazing Smoked Sausage


Westnewton Artisan Charcuterie are a family run business from Cumbria who produce superb Charcuterie, air-dried meats, sausages, hams, salamis and much more. The guy whos company it is I can never remember the name of, but he’s always up for a bit of crack, will let you know of any new products that are about to come out and….Oh yes…..He is the most Cumbrian man you will ever come across ‘Eh’! All the products they sell use meats sourced from within a 20 mile radius giving them a truly local low carbon footprint ethos. Typically the pork they use comes from Tamworth or Saddleback pigs which are both breeds that are more suited to gently idling around feeding rather than the 110m hurdles which gives a good fat to meat ratio that adds a real depth of flavour to his products.

This particular sausage is mouthgasmically good! If you manage to buy one online or at one of farmers markets they attend (Hexham Farmers Market 2nd Saturday of each month) You’ll never buy a dirty Mattessons Smokie again.
