North Country Smokehouse
North Country Smokehouse has been making some of New England’s finest artisanal meats and cheeses since 1912. Voted America's Best bacon by Men's Journal, North Country Smokehouse has been making some of New England’s finest artisanal meats and cheeses since 1912. All of our products are handmade and slow-smoked in small batches by our expert butchers, wurstmachers, and smokemasters, who never use artificial fillers or flavors. As one of the last remaining family-owned smokehouses in the country, we honor the high quality and integrity of other local producers by using fresh ingredients from farms, cheesemakers, orchards, and sugarmakers nearby. While the smokers are running, we also take the time to put our values – quality, patience, and doing the right thing – to work outside of the smokehouse. Our crews and contributions have helped revitalize downtown Claremont, NH, a vibrant community that has welcomed us as a neighbor for generations. We’re also a member of the Free Farmed program, which assures proper care and handling of livestock; look for the “certified humane” mark on a growing number of our products. As companies across America turn their focus back to buying local, creating jobs, supporting communities, and making ethical choices, we’re proud that we’ve been doing these very same things for a century and counting.
North Country Smokehouse, a family-owned, artisanal smoked meat producer with a strong history of culinary excellence, announced collaborations with Harpoon Brewery and Vermont Farmstead Cheese Company as part of its ongoing commitment to crafting recipes with fresh, locally sourced ingredients and supporting the “eat local” movement.
