Organic Leg of Pork

A versatile, tasty pork joint that's delicious roasted or made into gammon

You'll most likely know leg of pork as the joint that becomes gammon or ham. It's perfect for these treatments as it has really fantastic flavour, lean meat and robust structure. Cut from the top of the hind leg of the pork carcass, organic leg of pork is also delicious when cooked as a traditional roast. It's worked hard, though, so make sure you give it a bit of time to cook through and yield tender, juicy meat. For ease of preparation, our butchers have boned, rolled and tied this joint, ready to be popped into the oven.

Pigs have a hard life in industrial farms. They're highly intelligent animals, driven by strong instincts. When they're deprived of the ability to follow these instincts they become stressed and prone to fighting. At Coombe Farm Organic, we believe pigs should live in sociable family groups; they should live outdoors for as much of the year as possible and they should be able to rootle with their snouts and wallow in mud. The sustainable, organic system in which our pigs live has animal welfare at its core and produces amazing meat as a result.

 

FREQUENTLY ASKED PORK QUESTIONS:

  • Organic pork comes from organic pigs that have been reared in accordance to high welfare organic standards, they are raised a nature intended, living active lives outdoors, foraging and exercising freely. Our pigs are slow grown unlike intensive farming, this gives their muscles deep colour and robust flavour.

  • When choosing any meat to purchase, it is worth carrying out some research. There are a number of studies that suggest organic pork is a healthier option – higher in Omega 3, Amino Acids and Healthy Fats. There are also several other reasons why choosing organic pork is a good idea. They range from the contribution of organic pork to climate change, animal welfare and the use of pesticides and medicines used in the farming of conventional pork animals having a detrimental effect on our health.

  • At Coombe Farm Organic, our pigs are fed on a diet of grass, hay and concentrated food that helps them to grow at the rate nature intended. .

  • Pigs cannot survive only on grass, they also need some grain in their diet, this is why you will not find ‘grass fed pork’ on meat packaging, unlike beef which can survive on grass alone. At Coombe Farm Organic our pigs are raised on a diet of grass, hay and concentrated food that helps them grow at the rate nature intended.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday and you will be able to choose your preferred delivery day at checkout. The delivery charge is £3.95.

  • 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.

Pork is perfect when paired with earthy spices and pungent garlic. Make a heady rub for your organic leg of pork by grinding juniper berries, fennel seeds, pink peppercorns and sea salt to a coarse powder in a pestle and mortar. Add about five big cloves of garlic and pound to a paste, adding a smidge of oil to make it a rubbing consistency. Smear all over the joint, rubbing it into the skin and around any folds of meat. Put the meat into an oven pre-heated to 220˚C for 30 minutes then reduce 180˚C and roast for a further two or three hours. The skin will be crisp and crunchy, the meat moist and fragranced with the spices. Serve with a rich, fruity gravy, creamy dauphinoise potatoes and seasonal greens.
