Thinly sliced ham - approximately 250 gm pack.
Our hams are brined (salt and sugar) and smoked and contain the lowest level of nitrite (0.002%). The legs we turn into hams arrive at our factory as whole animals direct from the farm through the abattoir.
We buy whole bodies of a range of different sized pigs on a rotating basis from a number of farms - from big baconers through to suckling pigs. Most available cuts come from porker pigs which are about 50-65 kg that are 5-7 months old. Your ham will come from whichever pork is available when you order. The pork we source is:
- hormone and antibiotic-free;
- born and bred entirely free ranging on chemical-free pasture;
- a mix of breeds including Berkshire, Landrace, Large White, English Large Black, Duroc, Wessex Saddleback and Tamworth;
- from NSW farms.
The producers we work with are entirely transparent about their processes and welcome all questions.
