Our acorn-fed New Forest Pannage Pork has arrived and we currently have all the cuts to choose from. The pork looks fantastic, with a good layer of fat (it was a good acorn year) and a good weight. You can either buy a pork box (a selection of all the cuts) or come and buy the joint of your choice. Let me know if you want anything prepared.
Pannage Pork is pork that has fed off the woodland floor of the New Forest. It comes from Richard’s farm on the edge of the forest and the pigs trot out from their barn every morning to graze in the forest on whatever takes their fancy. Their favourite are acorns that they are allowed to hoover up as the acorns are poisonous to the New Forest ponies. Pannage is an ancient right that goes back to the time of William the Conqueror.
Our pannage boxes will have the following contents:
1 x boned and rolled leg joint of 1.5kg
1kg shoulder (Boned and rolled or diced)
1kg spare ribs or belly
1kg pork loin chops
1 pack of sausages
This will cost approximately £45
There will also be individual cuts, but the priority will go to those ordering boxes.
Pannage pork has a rich, succulent and full flavoured taste and is hugely popular with our customers.
