Our smokehouse sits smack dab in the middle of New England, located in the same lush countryside we’ve been doing business on for more than a century. Like most New Englanders, we lean into seasonal ingredients and find ourselves drawn towards the flavors our region is so well known for. From sweet maple syrup to buttery cheese, our passion for provincial flavor is apparent in every handcrafted, small-batch we smoke.
Summer is the perfect time to break out of your meal-planning rut and try new recipes with local ingredients. Gardens are bountiful and farmers’ markets can be found on almost every corner. So, turn off the stovetop and take it outdoors – it won’t be difficult, our fully cooked sausage, ham, and hot dogs make meal prep a breeze - all you have to do is heat & serve. Be it family meals firmly planted at the picnic table, or carefree campfire cookouts, summer dining with friends and family in your own backyard is the stuff sweet, smoky dreams are made of.
