Perfect for pulled pork!
Supplied by Blagdon Butchers.
Pork shoulder is a juicy and well-marbled cut, perfect for slow-cooking methods such as roasting, stewing or barbecuing, which transform it to meltingly fork-tender and flavoursome.
We use the traditional Saddleback breed, a no nonsense pig. They produce an all round carcass that is both equally good for your roast joint of pork and to cure for hams and bacon.
The pigs are all reared outdoors which means they are free to range across our pasture land and are given feed which is low-GM and pesticide free. At night they're housed in small groups which means they are kept at a high level of animal welfare standards and are not given routine antibiotics. This allows the animals to grow at a more natural pace, giving the muscles time to develop which creates a deeper, more intense flavour.
