North Country Charcuterie
North Country Charcuterie is a family operation – as they describe it, “A chef, his brother and their mother” dedicated to making quality charcuterie from locally sourced pork and flavorings.
They use humanely-raised Berkshire pork from nearby farms and source 95% of their ingredients from Ohio producers (including craft beer, cheese, and wine – even herbs and spices). Everything is handmade and cured at their own USDA-inspected facility. All North Country Charcuterie salami uses Berkshire pork from Saddleberk in Urbana, OH.
