Middle White Pork Belly Joint
Huntsham pork comes from our pedigree Middle White herd.
In the 1930s the Middle White was the pork pig of England. However, to compete with the influx of Danish bacon after the war, farmers started to breed larger, leaner pigs for bacon. Young pigs from these bacon breeds are now the source of most pork sold today and the Middle White, the only specialist pork pig, is very rare.
Its flavour and crackling are unlike those of any modern pork pig and its fat makes the best roast potatoes in the world!
The belly is carefully rolled as a neat joint to contain the flavour and is well suited to slow roasting.
