Rare-breed Pork Loin

£6.00£23.00

Rare-breed pork loin is tasty and versatile – you can either have it as a roasting joint – succlulent and full of flavour, great with a herb crust, or you can have individual steaks. Pork loin also works well cut into strips for stir fry or Mexican.

We use rare-breed Saddleback pork from a farm in Birdham near Chichester.  The Saddleback breed is ideal for outdoor rearing as they are hardy in all weathers, good at mothering, and extremely capable of looking after themselves in a natural environment. They are kept in small family units of about 10 per enclosure, alternating between woodland and pasture.

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.

Let us know if you would like your pork loin whole or in steaks.

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.
