from The SmokeShack
Established in 2016 by husband and wife team Ian and Anthea Hume - Humes | Quality Artisan Foods Orkney is the result of Ian’s, long-time hobby of smoking fish and cheese.
Both native Orcadians, Ian has been a deep sea trawlerman for almost all his working life and has a great love of the sea and its harvest – Anthea’s background is in administrative and community project work, however, they share a passion for celebrating and retaining many of the traditional preserving methods and recipes of their childhood – but with a modern twist!
From their production base - The SmokeShack – located at their home in Kirkwall, the couple create an ever-growing range of smoked goods. Current product range includes; smoked Orkney salmon; mussels; mackerel; haddock; kippers; Orkney cheese; olives and pates.
As well as their goods being available from a variety of local retailers (see Humes website for stockist list), Humes are also regular traders at the monthly Orkney Farmers’ Markets, where folk have an opportunity to taste much of the product range and take advantage of special ‘market only’ products (quiches, soup, etc).
To keep up-to-date with new products, sales events, stockists and general goings on at The SmokeShack – be sure to take a look at their website and social media feeds.
