Hi, and welcome from Colin & Katja!  We run Hanningfield Smokehouse on Great Prestons Farm, deep in the heart of the Essex Countryside.

Our ingredients are carefully selected before being prepared and then slowly hot or cold smoked over specific wood varieties chosen to enhance the flavour of and provide a lingering gently smoked taste to the fine products we source.

You’ll find our smoked salmon, award winning trout and trout pate as well as our other smokelicious goodies in many local farm shops and deli’s. We also regularly attend farmers markets and food shows across the county.

You can visit us here at the smokehouse on Great Prestons Farm, Great Prestons Lane, Stock, CM4 9RN. We are open Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm. Although we do not have a Shop we sell directly from the Smokehouse. We also stock the lovely Chicken and Duck eggs from the farm.

Or you can also shop online for free local delivery Monday to Friday if you live in Billericay, Brentwood, Wickford, Basildon or Chelmsford.

Every first Saturday of the month we have and Open Day 10am – 4pm where we have free tasters for you and show you the Smokehouse.

We also now offer free Group Visits to the Smokehouse for Groups, Clubs and Associations on selected Saturdays and weekday afternoons, click here for more details. After all…

The real proof is in the tasting.

  • "I just had to congratulate you on such a fine product."

    " Hi Guys, I bought some smoked trout from you at the Notley Green farmers market. Had it for tea tonight and it was so delicious that I just had to congratulate you on such a fine product. I will be looking to get some more soon. Well done! " - Gary G James

  • "Without doubt the best I have had in a very long time."

    Some years ago I used to smoke a lot of fish and game etc. I moved house about ten years ago and have not had the opportunity to really smoke since. My wife has just served lunch - your salmon! It was superb and without doubt the best I have had in a very long time. It bought back a lot of memories. We have tried a lot of the well known smokeries throughout the UK but nothing comes close to yours. We will be arranging a visit to you. " - Gary Dunn

  • “Can’t think of anything I’d have enjoyed more!”

My husband and I have just had it as the first course of my birthday celebration meal and it was absolutely gorgeous!!!! Delicate and delicious – can’t think of anything I’d have enjoyed more! Well done. I’ll certainly look out for it elsewhere. “ – Pam Cowling
