Food & drink producers
The Chilterns is home to some outstanding food and drink producers, with an ever-growing range of tempting goodies. We showcase some of these below, with many more on our interactive map.
Beautiful and iconic as they are, there are now more wild deer than the land can support. This is reducing biodiversity and limits successful tree planting, so population management is vital. It’s right and proper that the animal is respected, so for several years I’ve supplied some of the best local restaurants and farm shops with venison and now offer this by mail order. A traditional, sustainable and ethical meat with high nutritional value and low in fat, venison is versatile (think sausages, burgers, mince, dice and joints), easy to cook and can replace farmed meats in week day meals, roasts and barbecues.

Cured in the Chilterns: Local Charcuterie
Swap the old continental varieties for some local artisan-made cured meats for your deli-loving customers. These producers are taking locally-reared meat from Chilterns farms and turning it into the tastiest salami, chorizo, coppa, bresaola and more. Check out the seasonal salami range from Curious Foods in Tring. Chiltern Charcuterie in Berkhamsted hand-craft a wide range of cured beef, lamb, pork and venison, all sourced from local rare breed farms.
