This coppa is made from the collar muscles of whey fed, free range, rare breed Oxford Sandy and Black pigs. The collar is a hard working muscle, with a deep red colour and intramuscular fat. Both of these give the meat an intense flavour and silky mouthfeel. The coppa is dry cured with pepper, coriander, juniper and mace and then air dried for many weeks.

Cured meats can be split into two categories. Whole muscle meats are made with the whole muscle of an animal (picture a Serano ham) and are typically air dried or smoked. Encased meats (like your classic salami) use chopped or ground meat which is typically fermented and 'encased' to hold everything together
