Our charcuterie products are hand-crafted in small batches using high welfare, local, rare breed pork and premium ingredients to ensure the highest quality possible. Products available exclusively direct from us from our online shop www.haycharcuterie.co.uk/shop or stall. We have a regular stall at Hay-on-Wye Thursday Market and can be found at various Farmers Markets and Food Festivals throughout the year.

Hay Charcuterie is owned and run by Chef & Charcutier Rod Lewis & his wife Rachael.
Originally trained at Le Cordon Bleu, London, Rod decided to further his 25 year career as an accomplished Chef and train as a Charcutier. On the successful completion of advanced Salumi courses in Italy, he converted an outbuilding at his family home near Hay-on-Wye into a fully functioning kitchen and charcuterie.
As proud supporters of the Slow Food movement we believe that the best food comes from animals and land that have been respected. Low food miles, sustainability and only the best quality ingredients belong in the food we eat with minimal processing and zero unnecessary additives. We never compromise on these things so that our customers can buy the best; always!
