The Kennedy family have been farming Glenhordial since the 1940’s. The farm is situated in an area of natural beauty in the hills above Omagh on the edge of the Sperrins. Mervyn Kennedy has been involved from a young age rearing and fattening pigs. He was always interested in curing bacon as the end product of his toil with the animals. He attended various courses and after much experimentation he produced a tasty traditional cure. No water is added and the bacon tastes as it should, savoury, yummy and moreish. It is delicious in quiches, sandwiches and not forgetting the good old Ulster Fry.
They use the minimum amount of cure – No water is added ensuring their product is not salty and tastes as it should, savoury and delicious.
