Boerie, that's us.
🇿🇦 Meet the Makers 🇿🇦
John and Tim, a father and son team, passionate about excellent food. What those two lay their hands on is done properly. Owning a small butchery in Sterkspruit, John has perfected his Boerie recipes since 1992 and brought them with him when he came to the UK in 2002.
His son Tim founded the award winning artisan bakery The Street Bakeshop in Old Basing where many of the Boerie products are available to buy or are used on the menu.
These two are foodies throughout and experts in deliciousness.
It’s not for nothing that we say, at Boerie, the Flavour is King.
We make small batches of Boerewors, Biltong, Drywors (Droewors) and we even make proper Kasegrillers (Cheese Grillers) and a delicious Pork Sausage.
What is Boerie?
Originally Boerie refers to a South African beef and pork sausage called Boerewors (farmers sausage) that you braai (bbq), grill or fry. The Boerewors belongs to South Africans like bangers and mash belong to the British. (In fact, Boerewors goes beautifully with mash, just saying.)
This is where Boerie got its name.
How we work
All our sausages are made in small batches from the best ingredients we can find and according to proper South African recipes. Due to British Food Safety Regulation you will find a small number of preservatives in our sausages, but we are keen to keep these to an absolutely minimum.
We make our sausages in Basingstoke, Stroudley Road, RG24 8UQ. We ship nationally from there and on Fridays you can collect pre-orders directly from our site. Our sausages can also be bought a few miles down the road at The Street Bakeshop in Old Basing.
Boerewors is a curled up beef and pork sausage that is traditionally braai'd (bbq'd). You can braai (bbq), fry or grill it. We sell ours in 500g packs which is generally enough for a family of four.We make different flavours: Traditional, Garlic, Chilli and Cheese. Traditional and Cheese are our most popular.
