Description

Our Woodland pork is sourced from the wonderful Ed and Lexi Stavely. Learn more about how they raise their properly free-range hogs here.

These escalopes are cut from the pork leg, for a leaner finish than a loin escalope, but no less in flavour owing to our use of free range pork. Cut into neat portions, these escalopes are ideal for breading and quick frying and easy mid-week meals. These pork leg escalopes can be used as an alternative cut in a variety of dishes, such as Wiener Schnitzel.

Shelf life: minimum 5 days.

more about our woodland pork farm

Our free-range Woodland pork is sourced from the wonderful Ed and Lexi Stavely, in a patchwork of woodlands close to our base in the Cathedral City of Ripon. The pigs root, forage, and wallow to their heart's content and when the ground has been turned up, the hard-working hogs are moved on to a new challenge. Ed and Lexi's pigs are a mixture of Mangalicas, Tamworths, Large Whites, and Durocs, with the heritage breed meat and wild foraging providing rich flavours and ample marbling.

About the breed

Mangalica

curly coated curiosities of outstanding pork

Tasting notes:
sweet, silky, creamy
Region:
north yorkshire

At first glance, the Mangalica might be mistaken for another creature. Wrapped in a distinctive woolly coat, they're a hardy breed, well suited to outdoor rearing where they can forage and dig for grubs at their own pace - imbuing the meat with flavour and unrivalled marbling. This curly haired creature is laid back in nature, and were once so prized they traded alongside gold in Central European markets. The mechanisation and rationalisation of agriculture almost drove the breed to extinction, however chefs have led the charge to revive the breed, hailing the Mangalica as the wagyu of the pork world. Traditionally they were reared for lard and prized for their mellow, silky fat, and as you'd expect from this breed, the pork is beautifully marbled throughout. The breed has become popular with home cooks meaning British breeders are able to revive this old-world breed for years to come.
