If you love a rasher of bacon but want to keep the fat to a minimum, back bacon is a good choice. The loin meat is the leanest on the pig so is lower in calories than streaky. It's also a great way to get protein and a big punch of flavour into meals without needing to use a huge amount of meat. We cure our bacon with just four organic ingredients: sea salt, bay, juniper and black pepper. So it's chemical free and totally natural.
Coombe Farm organic pigs are reared in a high-welfare, free-range system. A Saddleback-Gloucester Old Spot crossbreed, they thrive in the climate of the West Country. Pigs are sociable, active animals so living outdoors for as much of the year is important for them. It might come as a surprise to learn that there's nothing at all lazy about pigs. They spend their time running and playing, rootling in the earth and, when it's hot, wallowing in mud baths. Being able to follow their natural instincts is vital for these intelligent animals, which is why high standards of animal husbandry are so important to us.
