Hagen's Organic Half Ham

Ham, Turkey or Roast Duck?

If meat’s your thing at Christmas time, it’s worth ordering the best quality produce from our Market experts. Choose from organic, free-range, smoked or glazed and don’t forget to ask your butcher about the provenance of the animal and how it was farmed.
