Our Rare-breed pork chops taste superb. There is nothing like a decent pork chop to keep you happy – succulent, tender meat getting a deep flavour from the bone and wrapped in a layer of fat that keeps the meat juicy and adds a rich level of taste. Our favourite way is on the BBQ, with the intense heat caramalizing the fat.
Ideal with apple sauce or a honey and mustard marinade, this is the perfect meal.
We use rare-breed Hampshire/Duroc crosses from Plantation Pigs in the South Downs. These rare breed pigs are ideal for outdoor living as they are hardy in all weathers, good at mothering, and extremely capable of looking after themselves in a natural environment. Plenty of fresh air and exercise helps to keep our pigs healthy and ensures they do not need routine anti-biotics.
They are slow maturing compared with intensively bred commercial breeds which results in more marbling and flavour. The meat is darker and they have a bit more fat than you might be used to but again, this enhances the taste and texture of the pork which is succulent and fine-grained.
