“The Hog and Apple was conceived in late 2006 through a passion for good food”.
Ged and James truly believe in the ethos of happy animals produce the most fantastic meat so free range animals are used at all time. Specialist farms around Yorkshire supply us with the rare breed hogs, taste tradition being our first point of call due their outstanding reputation stretching the length and bredth of the country. We deal with people who really care about the food they are producing and selling just the way it should be. We also endeavour to source top quality salad ingredients from the small independent farm shops around the York area, again keeping our ‘food miles down’ and returning some measure of control away from the large supermarkets. By supporting these smaller outlets, they support us, keeping costs down which we pass on to our customers.
“We are proud of Yorkshires Farming Heritage so we do our bit to showcase what is on offer from the area.”
We care so much about what you are eating, that we have recently set up a small area for some of our own hogs available for you to view any time prior to your event. We feed them non gm and non soya based feed along with plenty of apples and other sweet fruits all contributing to extremely tasty pork. We have also produced our own, fantastic range of chutneys, marinades and rubs that our family produce. They are truely superb and we are very proud that we are able to offer these to our clients.
We are keen to understand the animals that we cook and eat, so we show the animals the respect they deserve as they give us so much pleasure when the time comes for us to eat them. Its the ultimate in food provenance!
“All the animals we source are treated in much the same way, ultimately producing the absolute pinnacle in meat quality.”
Along with the tasty food, we provide the most friendly and professional staff and chefs available. We will cater to all your needs so you don’t have to worry about a thing. Ged and James will listen to all your requirements and deliver them to the highest standards.
At The Hog and Apple we understand the importance of food hygiene, so we hold all the relevant certificates. The machines have a safety certificate and The Hog and Apple holds its own Public Liability Insurance. This gives us and you peace of mind. Summer months are the busiest so it’s recommended you contact us in good time to secure your booking.
