Really embrace nose-to-tail eating and grab yourself some pigs trotters, an incredibly nutritious and versatile cut. These can be braised, stuffed or roasted, or simply used to add flavour, texture and nutrient value to your stock or broth.
If making a classic Tonkotsu ramen broth from scratch please add a note to your order and our butcher will cut the trotters lengthwise or into disks as you prefer.
Soy-free Rare Breed
Dingly Dell rear their own herd of pure Red Durocs which are noted for their high levels of intramuscular fat (marbling). Much of the pig's diet comes from their own foraging in the pasture and is made up of plants roots and insects but their diet is supplemented with a mix of UK sourced grains and seed meals. They are kept in a regenerative system in Suffolk and the farm has planted huge areas of wildflower meadows to improve biodiversity.
We source our pork as carefully as we source all of our meats, in that we find animals that have had a natural life where possible also performing vital land management roles such as forest clearing.
The terms ‘free range’ and ‘outdoor reared’ do not have clear legal definitions and do not necessarily meet our requirements.
We visit every farm we source from to ensure that the highest possible standards of welfare are used throughout the entire life of the animal.
