About us

Creating fine foods in the heart of Nottinghamshire for over 40 years, The Country Victualler is proud to remain the nation’s sole producer of The Alderton Ham.

Still, a family concern, our Managing Director Alison is passionate about maintaining heritage recipes and using only the highest quality ingredients.

In addition to our award-winning pork pies, bacon and sausages, we also create small-batch pâtés and terrines, and an extensive frozen pastry range for you to bake at home.

We practice whole carcass butchery, this enables us to have total traceability.

Supporting British farmers and Artisan producers means buying locally wherever possible. We are proud to hold Red Tractor certificates and our Pork supplier, Chafer farms, are RSPCA certified and, as a member of the Guild of Fine Foods, we are always looking for other Artisan producers to collaborate with. We use eco-friendly packaging and encourage our customers to reuse our complimentary freezer ice packs where possible.
