We all know charcuterie is not made just from pork. But what we might not know is the economy behind cured meats, why producers have chosen to make them the way they do; in short, the meaning of natural charcuterie.   

Cured meats made with beef, lamb or goat meat often have the same goal of promoting pastoralism and marginal areas, creating an extra revenue stream beyond dairy products. Natural charcuterie made without nitrites and nitrates and only with natural preservatives like salt, pepper, chili pepper, spices and smoke are also healthier, as well as representing farming practices that are more respectful of animal welfare, and which are particularly mindful of the animals’ diet and growth.
