As you will know from my previous post, the launch of ‘Sausage Hall’ is being sponsored by a Spalding company I grew up with. In fact, I went to Spalding High School with one of the daughters of the family! I certainly remember that their products graced the tables not only of my own household, but those of all of my friends and relatives as well. The Lincolnshire family firm of butchers, George Adams, based in Spalding, has been associated with great sausages, meat and fantastic handmade pork pies for nearly a hundred years. But now, Mary and Lizzi, the great-grand-daughters of the founder of the first shop, are launching a new brand: Adams & Harlow, which will undoubtedly be noted for the same extraordinary pork pies and sausages.
Mary and Lizzi’s pork pie heritage consists not just of George, but of their other great-grandfather too – Dick Harlow, whose family set up a butcher’s shop in Boston, Lincolnshire in 1895! So, whilst Adams & Harlow is a new venture, its two founders have extraordinary expertise and an amazing heritage with great provenance and tradition.
As was the way a hundred years ago, each Adams & Harlow pork pie is individual and made with only the finest ingredients, including 100% British meat. As each hand-raised pie takes two days to make, with sixteen different stages to complete before it even enters the oven, every one is the product of extraordinary skill passed down through the generations! Adams & Harlow pork pies taste every bit as delicious as those made by George and Dick all those years ago.
Based in the original George Adams butcher’s shop in Spalding, Adams and Harlow still make the ever-popular Lincolnshire Sausage recipe, using top-quality British pork and secret seasoning blend.
Adams and Harlow products are available at a number of regional and nationwide independent shops, details of which appear on their website; they can be ordered online from British Fine Foods and Ocado as well as bought directly from the original George Adams butcher’s shop in Spalding.
I’m delighted and honoured to have been sponsored by Mary and Lizzi, who will be providing their wonderful fare at Monday’s November 17th ‘Sausage Hall’ launch at Bookmark, Spalding, and at the London launch at Waterstones, Covent Garden, on Thursday November 20th. A fitting accompaniment to a story based in a Lincolnshire house built by a butcher!

Unless my memory is playing tricks on me (quite possible at this remove in time) we have another family link with Geo. Adams. I believe Doris worked there for a time, when i was still pre-school, so it must be around 1959/1960. I remember her taking me into the factory and showing me a sausage-making machine she worked at (of all things, in this context). I also remember one or two Christmases when Westlode Street had a (to my young eyes) massive pork pie on the sideboard. The staff got one each as a Christmas present.
Full marks on the sponsorship. Sounds like a wonderful kick-off tour.
Pork pies. Ah, delightful.
Congrats from across the water.
Thanks, Jack! If you visit their website, you’ll discover a range of pies to tempt any appetite! 🙂
It’s marvellous to have been sponsored by a firm so dedicated to quality. A truly great support for the Sausage Hall cause!
They are very generous and the idea has definitely caught people’s imagination. It’s lovely to think of ‘Sausage Hall’ on a roll! 😉
Good luck with the launch tomorrow
