Located down a country lane just outside medieval Burford in the rolling Cotswold countryside, Upton Smokery is a fabulous farm shop and family business run by Chris and Vix Mills, specialising in smoked meat, game and fish and an amazing range of local produce.
Their traditional process in the smokery involves salt curing, chilling, slow and cold smoking, then hot smoking to finish. To give a distinct smell and flavour, oak, beech and sometimes apple wood is used.
At Cotswold Village Rooms we think they are pretty perfect as they don’t use any artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives in any part of the process and only use the best, high quality ingredients.
Other delicious foods, including pates, pies, local cheeses, seasonal garden fruit and vegetables, wine, jams, chutneys, oils and vinegars from a host of local producers are also stocked – do take some time to visit and shop – it’s a delight!
