Our free range pigs feed on grass and lead happy lives in the great British countryside. We work with trusted, local farms to make sure we have the best breeds for the season. At every stage, we support traditional farming methods and encourage a sustainable and ethical approach to meat eating. The practices we promote and endorse reduce animal stress and lower food miles.
The best meat deserves the best preparation. That’s why we work with master butchers who have prepared this joint to the very highest standard. Our butchers have trimmed and tied this meat expertly so it is ready to cook and serve. This also means you can slice the pork leg boned and rolled neatly and portion it fairly. We go to this effort to maintain the quality you have come to expect from The Black Farmer.
|SHELF LIFE||5 Days from date of delivery|
|STORAGE ADVICE||While we’d be surprised if you could resist the temptation to enjoy immediately, please keep refridgerated unless you intend to eat it right away! Otherwise all our quality meat is suitable for freezing to preserve its taste and texture, meaning you can cook and serve it when you fancy. Once it’s been frozen, please thaw your meat slowly and thoroughly, ideally in the fridge overnight. We vacuum-pack our meat to naturally extend its freshness and make it suitable for home-freezing.|
|PACKAGING||This pack weighs approximately 1kg.
Your item will arrive in a 100% recycled box lovingly packed with FSC-certified shredded spruce from Britain and Sweden, natural sheep’s wool insulation and non-toxic chilled gel packs, all of which can be reused, composted or recycled. To recycle the gel packs, simply cut a corner and dispose of the contents through your normal domestic waste system, as the gel isn’t harmful to the environment. Better still, reuse them by storing in the freezer and chilling other products. The only component from our packaging that can’t be recycled are the foil liners which need to be go in household waste; the poly bags meat comes in needs to go in plastic recycling.

Make sure that you remove the pork leg boned and rolled from the fridge at least an hour before serving. It is essential that the meat is at room temperature if you are to cook it evenly. Next, rub a little oil over the joint and season it well with salt and pepper. Heat a large, heavy frying pan and bring the heat into the meat until it is seared all over and nicely browned. Place fat-side up in a large roasting tin with parboiled potatoes and cook for approximately an hour, according to your preference.
