Suffolk Salami Story

Salami is just one of Lane Farm’s popular product ranges. The farm itself is run by husband and wife team, Ian and Sue, as well as their eldest Daughter Rebecca. Very much a family business, Lane Farm had somewhat of a false start after the hurricane of October 1987 wiped out the entire farm and had to be rebuilt from the ground up.

Having started as a pig-breeding business, the Whitehead’s soon starting making their own pork products, from sausages to bacon and ham to burgers. It was following a trip to Italy 10 years ago that Ian and Sue became enamoured by Salami, the way it looks, feels, smells, is made, and, perhaps most importantly, the way it tastes.

  • Ian & Sue Whitehead

Ian and sue were careful not to get ahead of themselves and wanted to make sure they did the art of making salami justice. So, they travelled all over the world attending specialist courses at the likes of Stuttgart University and main land Spain.

Ten years on their award winning products can be found on the shelves of household names such as Co-op, Waitrose and prestigious stores Harvey Nichols and Fortnum and Mason as well as, of course, many local farm shops around Suffolk.
