WHO ARE COOMBE FARM ORGANIC?​

We are an organic farm in Somerset producing award-winning pork, beef, lamb and chicken. Farming organically means that we never use chemicals on our fields and rely instead on natural methods that are kinder to nature. Organic farms are home to 30% more species of wildlife and 50% more pollinators as a result. 

WHAT IS ORGANIC PORK?​

We rear organic pigs that are a cross of traditional, native breeds. Reared outdoors, they have plenty of space to express their natural instincts - they love to wallow, rootle and forage in the grass for bugs. Growing our animals slowly ensures their meat has great flavour and texture, balanced by just the right amount of fat.  

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 400g plain sausage meat
  • 2tbsp chopped mixed herbs
  • ½tsp English mustard
  • splash of milk
  • 40g flour
  • 80g panko breadcrumbs (or you can make your own)
  • vegetable oil

Method

  1. Put 4 of the eggs into a pan, cover with water and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for 5 minutes, then put straight into a large bowl of iced water for 10-15 minutes
  2. Add the sausage meat, herbs and mustard into a bowl, season and mix well with your hands or a wooden spoon. Divide into 4
  3. Peel the eggs. Beat the 2 remaining raw eggs together in a bowl with a splash of milk. Add flour to a second bowl with a little salt, then tip the breadcrumbs into a third bowl. Arrange in a sort of assembly line as this is how you're going to put the scotch egg fully together
  4. Cut out a square of clingfilm and lay it on your work surface, flour lightly. Put one of the meatballs in the centre, and flour lightly, then add other square of cling film on top. Roll out the meat until large enough to encase your boiled egg, remove that top sheet of cling film
  5. To assemble the scotch egg, roll one peeled and boiled egg in flour, then place in the centre of the rolled out sausage meat. Bring up the sides of the film to encase it, and smooth it into an egg shape with your hands. Dip each one in flour, then your raw egg, then breadcrumbs, repeating the last two processes
  6. Fill a large pan with vegetable oil (you'll need to be able to fully submerge your egg in this), drop a crumb of bread into the oil, when it sizzles and turns golden, you're ready to add your egg
  7. Add the eggs 2 at a time for approximately 7 minutes or until crisp and golden, drain on kitchen paper and leave to cool before serving

Frequently asked questions

  • 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.

  • 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.

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