Christmas at The Butcher’s Block

Christmas hams

Please note, our Butcher’s Block hams are now all pre-sold. We are not taking any more orders.

Christmas is a special time of year as we gather with family and friends to share great Kiwi traditions such as the Christmas ham!

We make our own hams right here in Wanaka so by choosing a Butcher’s Block Christmas ham, you will enjoy a ham made with passion and care the traditional way.

We source our free-farmed pork legs from Havoc Farm Pork, a fantastic family-run South Island meat producer. Each pork leg is honey-cured, smoked over manuka woodchips then slow cooked to create a truly delicious ham on the bone. Some legs are boned before being turned into a boneless ham or a champagne ham, which is boneless except for the knuckle.

Other Christmas meats

Help make those last few days before Christmas easier by pre-ordering the other meats and smallgoods you’ll need to feed family and friends over the holiday period.

Think about bacon and breakfast sausages for mornings, and steaks, sausages, chops and lamb backstraps for evening barbeques.

What about a fantastic rolled pork loin roast? A leg of lamb? A whole beef eye fillet or scotch fillet?

Simply let us know in advance, and we’ll have it all packed and ready for you to collect when you pick up your ham and/or turkey.
