Our organic pork comes from Richard Hazell at Scrubbitt’s Farm in Gloucestershire. His pigs spend all of their lives outside in the fresh air. They have access to huts with warm straw beds and in the summer they wallow in mud to keep cool. Sows about to give birth are looked after extra specially and only after 8-10 weeks will Richard start weaning piglets from them, which is much more family time than with conventional methods. “It is seamless, stress free and they don’t miss mum as much. Nor she them, also important.” Just how we like it.
Storage and prep
Perfect when coated in bread crumbs and cheese for a pan-fried Parmesan. Just make sure both sides are cooked steadily over a medium heat. Pork should be kept in the fridge, and should not be stored above other food, unless in a sealed container. Suitable for home freezing.
