Humes is a small, family run business producing an ever-growing range of smoked goods from our production premises 'The SmokeShack' - which is located at our home in Kirkwall.


Our current product range includes oak smoked Orkney Salmon, Orkney Cheese and Mussels - all of which are available from various local shops throughout Orkney.


Whilst being relatively new on the local food market, we have big plans for the future and look forward to extending both our product range and availability.

Quality products, preserved and produced in Orkney, using traditional methods and recipes - but with a modern twist

About us

Humes is the result of owner Ian Hume’s, long-time hobby of smoking fish and cheese – a process which he learnt from his father.


A northern 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 his wife Anthea who shares his love of their unique community – and also enjoys helping 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.


We hope you enjoy our products and welcome your feedback.
