DukesHill was founded in 1985 with a vision of producing the finest hams, traditionally cured using time-honoured techniques and with the highest regard for animal welfare. Our product range has grown over the years, but our guiding principle of putting flavour and quality before speed or yield remains as strong as ever.
From our humble beginnings in a converted cow shed in Shropshire in 1985, producing our popular Wiltshire hams started as a labour of love. Word spread and after becoming famous locally, by 1998 we were supplying non-other than the late Queen Elizabeth II. This was a proud moment for everyone and one that solidified faith in the importance of championing an artisan status.
Our commitment to quality led to us being selected by some of the top London Food Halls to produce their hams, and in 2003 we were awarded the ultimate accolade – a Royal Warrant to supply hams to the late Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
OUR JOURNEY IS ROOTED IN THE TRADITIONAL SKILL & CRAFT OF CURING FINE HAMS AND OUR LOVE OF ARTISAN FOODS...
Throughout our history, one thing that has never changed is our uncompromising attitude toward provenance, quality, and exceptional taste and flavour. We work in close partnership with British farmers and artisan producers to provide a wonderful array of top-quality fine foods. We only use the finest quality outdoor-bred British pork and the most traditional curing methods, even if it can take six months or more to make some of our hams!
We champion expert craftsmanship and the highest quality products and take pride in bringing only the very best food to our customers' tables. Made the proper way, with no compromise on time or quality.
Over the years our artisan range has expanded and we've moved to larger pastures, still calling the beautiful Shropshire our home. From top-quality cured and fresh meats, traditionally smoked fish, artisan cheeses, handmade puddings, and pies to luxury hampers and much more, we offer the finest
selection of top-quality artisan food, delivered directly to your doorstep.
What’s kept the quality just as it was all those years ago is our admiration for, and loyalty to maintaining a traditional approach to crafting fine foods and nurturing relationships with British farmers and small artisan producers. We believe it's this commitment that will keep our heritage rich and our food truly something to celebrate.
