Humes is a small, Orkney based producer of quality smoked; fish, cheese, mussels, pates and olives, along with an ever growing range of food products, inspired by traditional family recipes - but with a modern twist!
A northern Orkney isles boy by birth, Ian has been a deep sea trawlerman for almost all his working life and has a great love of the sea and its harvest - and also a passion for celebrating and retaining many of the traditional preserving methods and recipes of his childhood – but with a modern twist!
Assisting him in this venture is Anthea Hume (wife, co-owner, head of admin, marketing, etc, etc!) With a background in administrative and community project work, Anthea shares Ian’s love of their unique community – and also enjoys assisting him with quality and new product taste testing – a tough job, but someone has to do it!
Both Ian and Anthea believe that if a job’s worth doing – it’s worth doing well and their aim is to supply products which display their principles of quality, traceability and producer approachability.
Current product range includes oak smoked; Orkney Salmon; Salmon Pate; Orkney Cheese; Mussels; Mussel Pate; Mackerel, Haddock and Olives – all of which are available from a number of shops throughout Orkney (see website for stockists) and direct from Humes at the monthly Orkney Farmers Market.
