Organic Whole Belly of Pork

An tasty roasting joint that feels indulgent but won't break the bank!

Coombe Farm Organic pork belly is a really special roasting joint. Richly flavoured meat is topped with a generous layer of sweet, melting fat that is in turn crowned by a glorious layer of crisp-as-can-be crackling. You may be more familiar with pork belly presented as slices, but it's making a comeback as a joint. Not only is it easy to prepare, foolproof to cook and succulent to eat, it's a really affordable Sunday lunch centrepiece.

All of the pork we sell at Coombe Farm Organic comes from crossbred pigs that are half Gloucester Old Spot and half Saddleback. These are both native British breeds, well suited to living outdoors in our not always reliable climate. They're voracious foragers who love to search out tasty morsels from the ground. Native breeds tend to lay down more fat than their commercially bred counterparts, which can be seen as undesirable by industrial systems that want super-lean meat. But fat means flavour, it means succulence and it means characterful roasting joints. Where would pork belly be without a luscious layer of fat?

Organic pork belly is a fantastic slow roaster. Just put it in the oven and forget about it for a long while. Before cooking, thoroughly dry the skin and score it with a sharp knife. This will ensure the crispiest crackling. Rub with herbs and spices if you want to add extra flavours or go minimalist with just a good sprinkling of sea salt. Cook in a hot oven for 30 minutes until the skin is fizzing and sizzling. Turn the heat down to a low and cook for a further two and a half hours before cranking it back up again for the final fifteen minutes. To maintain the crispness of your crackling, slice it off the joint before wrapping the meat in foil and giving it time to rest. If the crackling isn't quite as brittle and crunchy as you'd like, give it a quick blast under the grill before serving.

Product FAQs

  • We deliver our organic produce Tuesday – Saturday. Delivery charges for weekday delivery are £3.95 and Saturday delivery £6.95. You can also select pre-12 delivery option which is at a higher rate of £6.95 for weekday delivery and £8.95 for Saturday. If you spend over £80 you will receive free weekday delivery. The cut off period to get your order the next day is 12pm any order placed after that time will be delivered after 2 days. For example if you order after 12pm on Tuesday you will receive your box on Thursday.

  • Our products are sent to our customers frozen because when we started the business we looked into convenience for our customers. We found that sending the produce frozen meant that they could order for instance a month’s worth of produce and could go into their freezer until they are ready to use it. It also meant that there was less risk to the meat whilst been delivered as fresh meat can be delicate and risky.

  • All of our meat is butchered in house. In December 2018 our in-house butcher was built which means that we have full control of what is cut and also means that we can accommodate more requests from our customers.

    You will find all the ingredients on the relevant product pages.

  • We have a dedicated page which explains all the different cuts and where they come from. Find out more here www.coombefarmorganic.co.uk
