Emmett's has been trading from its original site since 1820. In 1970, Emmett's was awarded a Royal Warrant by HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother for their sweet pickled hams. The store remained in the same family until May 2000, when Mark Thomas bought the business, which he has taken to its current position as one of Suffolk's world class food producers and suppliers. Emmett's is famous for their Suffolk cured ham and bacon, which are all produced on the premises behind the shop.
Emmett’s Orange Ham (photo) is one of a number of speciality hams they produce, the ham is cooked in freshly squeezed orange juice, orange peel, naturally dried apricots and figs before being redressed to look, smell and taste amazing. To produce their Suffolk bacon (photo) sides of Blythburgh Free Range Pork are cured in totally natural mineral salts and spices resulting in them being 100% nitrate free.
Emmett's has always been in the same location in Peasenhall, one of Suffolk's most picturesque villages, close to Halesworth and Framlingham, and a few miles inland from the famous Suffolk coastal towns of Southwold, Dunwich and Aldeburgh. Emmett’s also has a delightful café serving breakfast, lunch and light meals throughout the day, either in the café or in a secluded garden at the back of the shop, overlooking the old smokehouse where their ham and bacon are produced.
If you live too far away, do not despair, as Emmett’s offer a mail order service, which is available throughout the year. Orders can be placed via telephone, e-mail, online as well as in person if you are able to visit.
