Middle White Pork

Huntsham pork comes from our pedigree Middle White herd.  In the 1930s the Middle White was the pork pig of England. However, to compete with the influx of Danish bacon after the war, farmers started to breed larger, leaner pigs for bacon. Young pigs from these bacon breeds are now the source of most pork sold today and the Middle White, the only specialist pork pig, is very rare. Its flavour and crackling are unlike those of any modern pork pig and its fat makes the best roast potatoes in the world!

Our sausages are made from the prime meat of our Middle Whites (in contrast to most commercially available sausages) and are served in Michelin starred restaurants and gastropubs throughout the country.

Huntsham pork and sausages are available in a variety of options to suit individual needs. Our pigs are not large which means that even a half pig will fit in a domestic freezer drawer.

Ruth Rogers – River Café, London

“Slow roasted Middle White pork loin from Richard Vaughan with Ligurian olives, fresh rosemary, garlic and Pinot Bianco is always a favourite on the River Café menu.”

James Martin Visit To Huntsham Farm

James Martin on his visit to Huntsham Farm to see our Middle White herd with some of the devoted staff who look after our animals.

Middle White pigs are extremely rare and at Huntsham we have almost half of the UK herd of this wonderful pork pig. This means that we are large enough to be able to give our customers a reliable and consistent supply of this delicious pork. The result that is we supply a large proportion of the Michelin-starred restaurants in the country, along with a lot of good pubs where the chef thinks the quality of the ingredients he/she uses is of paramount importance – and a loyal band of private customers.

Our Middle White suckling pig was twice awarded 10 out of 10 on the Great British Menu when Chris Harrod of the Whitebrook cooked it and our 55 day aged Middle White for the dinner given for the 50 Best Restaurants in the World.
I know James is a great fan of Middle White pork – he has done a lot to promote this breed of pig.
