Organic Nitrate-Free Unsmoked Back Bacon

High-quality free-range back bacon, wake up to the delicious smell of crispy bacon sizzling away. Natural and sustainable no nitrites or nitrates.

Cut from the back of the pork carcass, Coombe Farm Organic's unsmoked back bacon incorporates the eye meat of the loin and the marbled layers of the belly. Our butchers have expertly trimmed the fat so you're left with just enough to keep the meat beautifully moist, and for a bit of crackling crunch on top. Back bacon is a breakfast-time stalwart, whether you're going full-on English or enjoying it with plenty of ketchup and butter between doorstops of bread. But there are lots of other ways you can enjoy it, for any meal of the day. Organic pigs are naturally reared and are free-range in large paddocks which allow them to rootle around and wallow in muddy pools. Organic is obviously important to us, but so is natural, which means we cure our bacon without the help of chemicals such as nitrates. We've pared the process right back and use only sea salt, brown sugar, juniper, bay and black pepper as curing agents.

If you love a rasher of bacon but want to keep the fat to a minimum, back bacon is a good choice. The loin meat is the leanest on the pig so is lower in calories than streaky. It's also a great way to get protein and a big punch of flavour into meals without needing to use a huge amount of meat. We cure our bacon with just four organic ingredients: sea salt, bay, juniper and black pepper. So it's chemical free and totally natural.

Coombe Farm organic pigs are reared in a high-welfare, free-range system. A Saddleback-Gloucester Old Spot crossbreed, they thrive in the climate of the West Country. Pigs are sociable, active animals so living outdoors for as much of the year is important for them. It might come as a surprise to learn that there's nothing at all lazy about pigs. They spend their time running and playing, rootling in the earth and, when it's hot, wallowing in mud baths. Being able to follow their natural instincts is vital for these intelligent animals, which is why high standards of animal husbandry are so important to us.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.

  • 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.

Bacon is an excellent partner for lots of different ingredients – some of them rather surprising. Use it wrapped around chicken, casserole it with rabbit or add it to a New England-style clam chowder. It brings flavour to simple lentil recipes and lends a contrasting texture to wilted greens or stir-fried sprouts. And when it's barbecue season, you can't go wrong with a generous heap of bacon on top of a freshly grilled steak burger. Just add a cold lager for good measure.
