Gammon hock is the meaty middle section of the pig's leg. Comprising a collection of muscles plus connective tissues and the thigh bone, this is a hearty cut with rich, complex flavour. Because the leg muscles have worked hard, the texture of hock is open and robust. With slow cooking the meat will fall into moist strands, of the sort you'd see in pulled pork. A thrifty cut, hock would traditionally have been boiled. .
Our ham hocks come whole, on the bone, they are cured without nasty nitrates, we use just natural ingredients to bring out the best flavour. The quality of our meat is reflective of our high-welfare and sustainability standards; our organic pigs are fed a healthy diet of grass, hay and concentrated food and are slow-grown to maturity, running, basking, and wallowing all year round. Living outdoors is obviously vital for the well-being of these intelligent creatures, but it’s also vital for the production of top-quality pork.
