About Upton Smokery
Set up initially on a micro scale, Upton Smokery has grown rapidly due to the quality of the food we produce. We now supply a broad range of oak and beech smoked meat, game & fish to the public, pubs, restaurants, hotels, catering butchers, catering companies, wholesalers and distributors.
It is a family business set up and run by Chris & Vix Mills and is located just outside Burford – the gateway to the Cotswolds. This location puts us right in the heart of England with easy access to busy town centres and surrounded by a rich myriad of fine eating establishments for which the Cotswolds is renowned.
Our traditional process involves salt curing, chilling, slow & cold smoking, then hot smoking to finish using oak, beech and sometimes apple wood. We do not use artificial colourings, flavourings or preservatives in any part of our process .
We are confidant that once you have tried our diverse range of traditionally smoked meats, you will definitely come back for more !
Here is a picture of Vix selling our products at the very busy and well run food fair at the Kingham Plough .The other is of Chris doing some serious market research . This one went back as we, like others, believe that wild salmon belong in the rivers .
