Butchers E J Harley and Son have traded in Usk since 1968 and bought the adjacent bakery in 1989. With the bakery came a fully operational 100 year old steam tube triple deck bread oven.

Harleys Hogroasts was established in response to a customer’s request to roast a whole pig in the bread oven. The roasted pig was a huge success and Harleys Hogroasts was born.

Sadly bread is no longer baked on a commercial level, however Harleys Hogroasts continues to trade from the bakery using the bread oven for roasting pigs and other meats.

Modern purpose built mobile ovens supplement demand and afford a capability to bake up to 20 hogroasts at any one time and extend our service nationwide. The essence of the business is and always will be, providing our customers and their guests with a quality product.

Year on year Harleys Hogroasts supply food to over 25,000 individuals, our reputation continues to be envied by many of our competitors.

Harleys Hog Roasts are approved suppliers to the Glen-Yr-Afon House Hotel Usk, an award winning wedding venue and many other wedding venues.
