Outdoor Reared Pork

Outdoor Reared Pork

A very exciting project was presented to us recently by a huge character fresh from your TV screens - Chef Ellis Barrie, who you will have seen starring on Great British Menu for the second year running. Ellis and his brothers, Liam and Conor, have created The Fat Pig Company - along with the other projects that run concurrently, namely their incredible Restaurant in Anglesey, Marram Grass and their new Kickstarter project The Cookery School.The energy, passion and enthusiasm that these lovely boys generate is completely infectious and within twenty minutes of showing Ellis around The Butchery here in Shropshire, we found ourselves agreeing to taking in their Tamworth Pigs and adding them to our website ......... WHAT?!!!!!! Yes, we did. They went like hot cakes !! Or Hot Pork .... Ellis will be introducing a few different breeds of pigs to his lovely orchards so look out for Tamworth crossed with Berkshires, Welsh Whites, Berkshires, Gloucester Old Spots and many more!

  • Berkshire x Welsh White Suckling Pigs - Oven Ready, Half

    These piggies were carefully outdoor-reared for us by the wonderful Barrie Brothers on Anglesey - proud owners of the highly acclaimed Marram Grass Restaurant, as well as some brand new Holiday Homes and now a Cookery School. We were told exactly the day that these piglets were born so that we could include them in our quota for Christmas, as they have just recently reached the perfect weight for processing and had begun to forage, so were very much ready.The decision to rear a cross between a Welsh White and a Berkshire pig is part of their ongoing search for the perfect pig, and we are very happy with this result. We always take whole litters when we are buying suckling pigs, it's part of a welfare friendly approach that we have taken with our farmers, and so we only have 9 of these particular suckling pigs available - when they are gone, they are gone as the saying goes!

  • Outdoor Reared Pork Belly - Min.2kg

    Just as described above, except this piece of belly weighs in at 2kg.. We couldn't wait to present you this iconic and increasingly popular cut - and we have some great tips for achieving that amazing crunchy crispy crackling that everyone loves!

    1. Try placing the belly, skin side up, in the sink and pour boiling water over it (a kettle full). Then let it drain well and pat it completely dry before adding the rub.

    2. Use a good oil to rub all over the skin, (which has already been scored for you) and then rub a nice sea salt well in, getting down into all the cracks. You can add fennel seeds too if you like fennel.

    3. Get your oven nice and hot at about 220 Degrees C ...... and place the belly in a deep baking tin on top of roughly chopped vegetables such as fresh fennel, leeks and carrots. You need to place the belly in the oven at this temperature for about 15 - 20 minutes or until you see that crackling beginning to rise and bubble, going beautifully crisp.

    4. Once that process has taken place you can turn the oven down to about 160 Degrees C and leave the belly in for at least another two hours. You can test to see if it is ready after that time by pulling it with a fork to see if it comes away easily.


    The end result is sure to be fantastic and we just know you'll be a Food Hero in your own right after producing this dish for your friends and family! Learn More

  • Outdoor Reared Gloucester Old Spot Meaty Spare Ribs Min. 2kg

    Exactly as described, these spare ribs have a lot of meat on them - much more than the usual sheet of ribs with which you are familiar. The ribs can be paired with your favourite bbq spare rib sauce, or even just slow roast them in the oven - however you choose to serve them they will go down a storm! Such good value for money too, each pack contains approx. 2kg of ribs which we believe would serve eight people easily as a main course or a starter. Learn More
