Rich, gelatinous and gloriously bones an old fashioned staple to make broth.
Woefully under-rated, organic pork trotters are an old-fashioned favourite that's prized in many cuisines around the world. They're having a slow revival in the UK, but even then they remain very much a marginal cut. Given how thrifty and versatile they are, we think they're definitely worth rediscovering! Packed with gelatin, trotters are meatier than you might think. When slow-cooked they'll yield tender meat, hearty stock and lots of jelly – perfect for use in pies and terrines.

As a food culture, we've grown used to discarding or ignoring the parts of a carcass that we find icky. In fact, some bits have fallen so far out of favour or are considered so distasteful that you're unlikely to even see them. At Coombe Farm we believe that every part of a carcass, especially the offal, should be utilised – out of respect for the animal and in recognition of the work that's gone into rearing it. And what we definitely shouldn't ignore is the fact that offal represents some of the best nutrition we can get from meat. All that gelatin in trotters? It's a versatile ingredient we should definitely get reacquainted with.

At Coombe Farm we believe in sustainability. And we live it. Regarding our packaging:
Your delivery box is made of 100% recycled paper and is 100% recyclable.
To keep your order frozen we use ice packs which will retain a low temperature for a long period of time. Reuse them for a picnic or simply snip, empty the water and pop in your plastic recycling.
We use paper pulp sheets to insulate the box. They are great for craft projects or can also simply be recycled with paper waste.
We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £5.
Freezing is the most natural way of preserving food. And as here at Coombe Farm Organic we believe in slow-grown, healthy food, a form of preservation that doesn’t need artificial additives gets a big tick from us.
We use blast freezing to preserve all of our meat products. It’s done at the point of butchery, to temperatures of -26°C. This locks in all the freshness, flavour and nutritional value and means you get the longest possible shelf life at home once you’ve defrosted it.
It also guarantees it will arrive with you in tiptop condition - confidently delivering fresh meat would be much more challenging.
All of our meat is butchered in our in-house butchery by our small team. This means we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.
You will find any product ingredients on the relevant product pages.

Your organic pork trotters will be clean when you receive them. To extract the gelatin, simply add the trotters to a pan with onion, celery, carrots and herbs, cover with water, bring to the boil then simmer for a good few of hours. Skim off any scum that gathers and keep the water topped up. When the trotters are tender, remove them and the veg from the stock. Strain the liquid through a fine seive and leave to cool. The fat will rise to the surface and the jelly will set. Store it in jars or freeze in silicon moulds for use in pies and stews or as an ingredient in gravies. Don't forget to pick the succulent meat from the cooked trotters – it's particularly excellent in a coarse terrine, alongside some of the jelly, of course.
