It’s the tenth day of our 12 Gifts of Christmas campaign, and we can reveal that today’s contribution comes from THE ARTISAN SMOKEHOUSE!
The Artisan Smokehouse is a multi-award winning business run by Tim and Gill Matthews, and produces a delicious range of smoked foods and beautiful hampers. The smokehouse is based in the tiny village of Falkenham, on the Deben Estuary, in beautiful rural Suffolk. Two years ago the business diversified and opened their deli, cafe/bistro as well as expanding their online business – it has been a great success! Tim and Gill are passionate about the local community, prioritising local British producers and using ethically sourced products.
The Artisan Smokehouse have generously donated their British Hamper – an elegant black box filled with eco friendly packaging, and packed with delicious British products. It includes packs of smoked British beef fillet, smoked free-range duck breast, smoked salmon, smoked Stilton, and smoked Farmhouse Cheddar. It also contains artisan cheese biscuits, a jar of Tracklements chutney, a smoked garlic bulb and a bottle of smoked Suffolk rapeseed oil.
‘Christmas is a time to spread cheer, follow traditions, celebrate with friends and family. We also, as a business, luckily provide lots of fabulous Christmas presents to households across the UK, we literally deliver Christmas! Not everyone will be able to do the things that many of us enjoy over the festive period, so I hope that our donation and support goes to someone deserving as a little thank you from all those people in our rural corner who have supported us over this festive period.’Tim Matthews
This means that the current value of the hamper is an incredible £338! The Rural Business Awards will match the overall value of the hamper as a donation to the public’s chosen charity. Follow the links to cast your vote in our Twitter or Facebook polls.
Remember, if you want to be entered in the prize draw to win the hamper, share and comment on one of our 12 Gifts of Christmas posts on social media before 5pm on 12th December 2018.
