A hidden beauty of a cut - kind on the purse strings and a joy to eat. Pork cheeks must be slow-cooked to ensure they are super tender as should be. Best slow-braised with sweet flavours like caramelised onions, leek or sweet smoked paprika for something a little different.
Our organic pork comes from two partner pig farms, one here in Devon and one in Gloucestershire. Their pigs are outdoor bred and reared and spend their whole lives outside, the way it should be. They come from a British Landrace cross Duroc sow, giving lean meat with defined contrast in the joints, so we can do everything from our famous Roam & Relish bacon from the flavour-rich belly to a pull-apart, slow cooked shoulder joint. The pigs are free to roam, wander and forage as much as they please and are given an organic feed to get those vital vitamins and minerals they can’t find from the ground. In the summer they wallow in cool mud baths and in the winter, they can snuggle up in deep beds of fresh straw. Unlike intensive farms, their tails and teeth are left unharmed. Animal welfare is at the heart of everything we stand for and these pigs lead a natural and happy life. Every cut is hand finished, cooked with carefully selected cures and butchered using traditional methods. From bacon to slow-roasting joints, chops and sausages, we’re proud of our organic pork.
