Halswell Butchery Ham

2: Ham

Our hams are all cooked on the premises, with minimal water added. You can purchase them whole, or we can slice to order.

3. Bacon

All the bacon we sell is dry cured the old-style way on our premises. As the name suggests, dry curing means that no water is added. This ensures that whether you are pan frying or grilling, the bacon doesn't steam, ensuring you get a lovely, crispy result. Perfect for your weekend breakfast!

A large range of loin, shoulder and Danish style (using just the eye) options, with or without rind are available. Check them out next time you're in.

Free Range Bacon Christchurch

3: Beef - Fillet and Rib Eye Steaks

Our premium steaks are all aged at least two weeks to maximize flavour.

Fillet steak is the tenderest cut available and is so lean, there is almost no waste.

Ribeye steak has a little more marbling, which many believe provides a superior flavour.

4: Smallgoods - Salamis

We stock a full range of salamis - from a feisty pepperoni, to strong garlic through to mild for those who like to take things a little more slowly.

If you're after an elegant addition to your antipasto platters, look no further than our delicious Prosciutto. Air dried and sliced thin, it's also fantastic to wrap around other meats or fruits.

Another one to try is our Pancetta - Italian bacon which adds a sophisticated touch to pasta and stew.

Sliced Chorizo is another option to spice up your antipasto. It's superb on crackers, or in many Spanish tapas dishes.

5: Smallgoods - Sausages

Kransky sausages, with their distinctive smoky flavour, make a great alternative for hot dogs, and are usually a big hit with the kids.

Frankfurters are the more traditional hot dog option - and who says you have to wait for the weather to get warm to enjoy a sausage in a bun??
