At Vermont Smoke & Cure®, we’ve been consciously crafting delicious smoked meats and meat snacks since 1962. We use responsibly sourced meats and simple ingredients, spices and herbs to create the finest flavor in every bite. Our team of employee-owners creates our delicious products in our Smokehouse right here in the hills of Vermont. We pride ourselves on being a good neighbor and valuable partner to our local farmers. This is simply the way we do business – and it all combines to create the finest flavor in every bite.
Thank you to our sponsors!
