If you're looking for an easy way to get loads of flavour into your dishes with very little fuss, choose organic bacon lardons. 'Lardon' is basically just a fancy word for bacon bits. This might sound like a humble ingredient (and, yes, it actually is) but it delivers a huge whack of flavour to everything you add it to. We make our lardons from our organic nitrate free back bacon and organic nitrate free streaky bacon, combining the two to get the perfect balance of meaty-salty-fattiness. You can use them as a seasoning in stews and with roasts or make them that star of their own recipe. Either way, you'll be blown away by the flavour they bring.
At Coombe Farm Organic we like food that tastes of its ingredients. That's why we make bacon the properly old-fashioned way with pork, salt and just a suggestion of brown sugar. Chemicals in the shape of preservatives, stabilizers and flavourings are not invited to this party. Why? Because we absolutely don't need them. The distinctive flavour of naturally made bacon comes as a result of the curing process. Natural sea salt (either as a dry cure or brine bath) draws moisture from the meat, intensifying the flavour as it does so. We love bacon that tastes of, well, bacon – not of chemicals – which is why we make it this way.
Ingredients: organic pork (99%), sea salt, organic raw cane sugar

Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Sizzling up your lardons is the work of moments. No need to add any oil, the bacony bits will start to release their delicious fats as soon as they hit the hot pan. Add a handful of lardons into a slow-cooked pork casserole (we love ours made with cider and thyme) as an alternative to seasoning it with salt. You'll get a wonderful background flavour that really emphasises the porkiness of the dish. Lardons are also good friends with poultry. Use them in a chicken caesar salad instead of anchovies, or use them in an indulgent stuffing to serve with pheasant.
