Middle White Pork - Half Pig
A wonderful way to taste and enjoy the various joints of this heritage rare breed the Middle White,
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 sausages are made from the prime meat of their Middle Whites (in contrast to most commercially available sausages) and are served in Michelin starred restaurants and gastropubs throughout the country.
