The Collar Bacon Joint is cut from the shoulder of the pig.  It used to be very popular in your local butcher shop but these days they are hard to come by.   However, they continue to prove to be one of our best sellers.

This area of the pig creates excellent joints of pork for roasting and boiling, making them very tender and juicy.  Collar Joints are beautifully marbled with fat which results in the most amazing taste.   Best served hot and whole, they make a great alternative for a Sunday roast.

We like to think the way we look after our British outdoor-reared pigs, with plenty of fresh air, makes them taste even better.   This combined with our traditional curing process, which uses no chemicals or colourings,  create a delicious end product.    Also available in smoked, we use oak chips and a long smoking process to give the meat the best possible flavour.

Recipes for the Collar Bacon Joint are endless so check out our pork recipes or email us if you would like to add yours!

All our products are delivered to you fresh in temperature controlled boxes.  You can freeze on the day of receipt unless otherwise stated.

  1. I ordered an 3.5kg
    unsmoked collar joint. It was very reasonably priced, quite enough to carry
    the P&P by itself, and arrived swiftly and in good condition. Would have
    been five stars!

    Here in trendy foodie North London, I don’t know a butcher who will sell a
    collar joint.

    As would the bacon joint I ordered from you last year, but at the time the
    carrier lost it for a few days and it was too late for the celebration it
    was planned for. Though it did arrive unharmed a day late; and was
    delicious. I was peeved by the no-show, but you did everything you could,
    and when it wasn’t enough refused to take my money. Good service is only
    really known when things go wrong. And very honourable.

    I should tell all my friends about you: I’m just slightly worried there
    won’t be any left for me…

  2. many thanks, excellent service and beautiful bacon perfect!

  3. 5 out of 5

    We love a good boiled bacon dinner, but in recent years, it has been absolutely impossible to find collar joints in the local shops, even at the butcher’s. Lots of gammon joints, but no bacon joints. Then last year, we discovered the Wiltshire Bacon website, so decided to take a chance and order a collar joint. Wow — what a wonderful meal and so juicy and succulent! It was the very best we had ever eaten and now, of course, we are hooked! It always seems to be in short supply, but whenever we they’re available, we order a couple for the freezer. Boil it up with some halved new potatoes and sweetheart cabbages and enjoy!
