arking back to an age when time was of little consequence we at Richard Woodall steadfastly utilise the same recipes and techniques as our ancestors did more than 175 years ago.
The poor pig, so often the source of derision, insult and comedy, was once a vital part of domestic economy and kept by many households, rural and urban alike. Back in 1828 Mrs Hannah Woodall, being recently widowed, sought to increase her meagre income by curing and processing the neighbouring families' pig. Aided by her eldest son, Jackson, Hannah's business began to prosper laying the foundations of a very special enterprise, which still flourishes almost two centuries later.
The enormous breeds of pig, which once produced table-groaning spectacular 30lb hams, are now a relic of yesteryear. Today’s farmers can produce a smaller animal more suited to current eating trends and dietary requirements.
Using knowledge acquired and fine-tuned across many generations the Woodall family together with our highly capable, loyal team are able to produce delicious, prime quality products to delight discerning customers.
To match the demand for Richard Woodall products the company has recently made significant investments in its premises. New improved production and packaging equipment ensures produce reaches customers in perfect condition. Quality, customer satisfaction and a commitment to producing the finest products... words rooted through the history of Richard Woodall and fiercely protected to the present day.
