The first pork

Got the first of our pigs back this week 46kgs of beautiful sweet pork. A renowned local butcher did the hanging and cutting and commented they were good which means a lot to us as we have put a lot of effort in trying to get it right.

Had our first piece of belly last night .... yum ... Roast potatoes cooked in the fat, you can see why dripping used to be so popular, the stuff off your standard crate/shed reared pig on fast grower rations doesn't compare.
