Two pork steaks from our herd of organic Oxford Sandy and Black rare breed pigs. Our rare breed Oxford Sandy and Black pigs are a great all-rounder, fantastic porkers and good baconers too, but the other reason we choose the Sandy and Black is they are a truly laid back breed.
Great to work with and great when we have so many school trips around the place, the piglets can often be seen wandering around the lower yard and car park (the little ones are able to leave the farrowing pens (maternity quarters) through small bob-holes and wander around getting into all sorts of mischief).
The rump lends itself to the slower cook recipes when compared to the loin steaks but remains juicy and tender even if overcooked. These organic pork steaks are perfect for slow cooking alongside fresh chopped apples and cider.
The feedback we receive time and time again from our award winning pork confirms that traditional, slow grown, organic and outdoor reared pork tastes as only pork should.
We get our rare breed pork from one of two farms, Gazegill Organics, based at Clitheroe or Cross Lanes Organic Farm in Darlington. In both cases their pork is different and tastes like pork used to taste. Rearing the animals slowly and outdoors where they behave in a natural way using their muscles more results in a flavour that is unique – they get no wet feed like most supermarket rubbish but are fed on a carefully blended cereal and grass, the average intensive pig can be reared in as little as 20 weeks where it is housed for its entire life and fed on demand – our outdoor and free-range pigs take 12 months to mature and have a natural layer of fat.
