Organic Pork Lard
Follow tradition and add lashings of flavour to your cooking - part of our offal range
These days, our store cupboards are dominated by vegetable oils and we've gotten into the habit of believing that animal fats are bad for us. But the tide of opinion is turning, and animal fats, such as Coombe Farm Organic's pork lard, are experiencing a well-deserved resurgence. Cooking with these fats lends a well-rounded and mellow flavour to all sorts of dishes. Unlike neutral vegetable oils, pork lard is a tasty ingredient that brings characters and depth your cooking.
Of course, the quality of pork lard is influenced by how it's made and how the animals it comes from were reared. At Coombe Farm Organic we make our organic pork lard the old-fashioned way – it's gently and very slowly rendered away from the skin of the pig, leaving a pure fat with no additives. Our pigs are reared in a high-welfare system, eat a purely organic diet and are never routinely given antibiotics. That means you can be assured that the lard they produce is clean and unadulterated.

No. You can leave a message with your order telling us where you would like to have your box placed. It would be best placed somewhere cool or at least in the shade – especially during the hotter months of the year. Our products will stay at the same temperature for up to 40 hours, so just make sure that you can pick up your order within that time.
Our couriers will send you a text message or email, which ever you prefer, giving you an hour slot when your box will arrive. If that doesn’t suit you, some options will be provided to make your delivery more convenient.
Our products will stay frozen at the same temperature for up to 40 hours. Simply put them in your freezer after delivery or in your fridge if you want to defrost them and use them within the next few days.
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.

Cooking with organic pork lard isn't just tasty, it's easy too. With a low smoking point, lard is an ideal fat for frying as it doesn't fill the kitchen with an unpleasant oily smell. Try using it for crispy roast potatoes (well, obviously) or in recipes like fried chicken where you're looking for a non-greasy crumb. And you can't beat hot-water crust pastry made with lard: it's light, crumbly and really easy to work with.
