About Us

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 Orkney isles boy by birth, Ian has been (and continues to be!) a deep sea trawlerman 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.
