New pork pie brand launches

The great-granddaughters of two rival Lincolnshire butchers have launched a new company, making hand-raised, artisan pork pies.

Adams & Harlow, which was launched at this week’s Speciality & Fine Food Fair in London, is the new venture from Mary and Lizzi Adams, whose family has run Geo Adams and Sons Butchers’ in Spalding since 1910.

The pies are handmade from 100% British meat in the original Spalding premises, using family recipes handed down from both George Adams and his rival, Dick Harlow, who founded a pork pie business in Boston in 1895.

Director Mary Adams said: “I am sure my grandfathers would be delighted to see that today’s pork pie connoisseur can still enjoy the tradition they started. Alongside the original famous hand-raised pork pie, our delicious range also includes: the Red Devil pork pie, with cheese and chilli; the Huntsman Pie, made with layered pork and chicken breast, with a topping of crispy sage and onion stuffing; and the Gamekeeper Pie, which is topped with morello cherries.”

The new brand, which is focused on supplying independent retailers, hospitality and foodservice, already supplies a number of Antic pubs across London as well as creating an exclusive pie for Fortnum & Mason.
