We are Keith and Linda Meredith.  

We have lived on the outskirts of Wellingborough, in Northamptonshire for over 25 years.

 

We have always been passionate about good food: using organic methods to grow our own fruit and vegetables, buying fair trade items and meat and eggs from free-range animals and birds.  

 

For several years Keith has smoked cheese and and cured and smoked bacon for home consumption. It began with a ProQ smoker given as a Christmas present. Experiments with different sawdusts and smoking times resulted in a range of apple-smoked British cheeses, which were enthusiastically received by family and friends alike.  

 

Further ventures into the mysteries of curing produced some inedibly salty Victorian-style bacon! Experiment and research have resulted in a molasses dry-cured, beech-smoked short back bacon.

 

Having established that there was a market for the products, when he was made redundant Keith decided to turn his passion into a small artisan business.  

 

And so the Little Smokehouse was born.
