We are THE NEW ENGLAND BOAR COMPANY.
And we are very proud of what we do.
The story of The New England Boar Company began in November 2015 with Jim Bolton, Vicky Gamble and some hairy, slightly nosey little characters called wild boar. At this point we will explain for those who are not- so- local that New England is in fact a small village on the Essex/Suffolk borders. Jim grew up in the wood which was planted by his grandfather after the Second World War and in 2013 the wood came into Jim’s ownership. Driven by a passion for ethically produced local food, we decided to do something entirely different and after years of planning, research and fencing and two years of discussions with the local authorities, The New England Boar Company was at last up and running.
It certainly hasn’t been without its’ challenges but steeled by a burning desire to bring these amazing creatures and their unique products further into the public realm, we refused to give up. Our aim is to bring our wild boar products to your table in every way we can, with something to suit all tastes. It’s said of all things porcine that you can use “everything but the squeal” and that is exactly what our goal is.
One of the things we are most proud of, aside from our exceptional husbandry and respectful relationship with our beasts, is the traceability of our product and the privilege of being able to cherry-pick the highest quality animals at exactly the right time, therefore delivering fine quality every single time. Please feel free to ask us any questions about the traceability and quality of our products – we are happy to help!
In early 2016, we formed a strong working alliance with Marsh Pig, an award- winning British charcuterie company based in Norfolk. Our boar deserve the best so we found them the best British charcuterie producer.
September 2018 has seen us add the first in a long line of planned new products – wild boar sausage rolls – handmade by us and now available cooked or frozen-ready-to-cook at events and markets throughout East Anglia. Keep your eyes peeled as there’s much more coming your way!
