Taken from the ankle and calf region of the pig, our ham hocks are incredibly meaty, full of flavour and excellent value for money. Leaving the skin on helps to keep them tender while cooking.
Serves: Up to 2 people
The Butcher: A very versatile and cheap cut, the hock is unfamiliar to a lot of people but will soon become a favourite.
In The Kitchen: Cooked on a low temperature over a long period, the hock will produce tender meat that is traditionally used in ham and pea soup. The leftover meat also makes a delicious ham sandwich.

Ham hock Reviewed by Gillkanga on 20 Nov 2020
Made some lovely soup.
Delicious and perfectly packaged Reviewed by Charlotterebeccahoare on 10 Nov 2020
Used these to make a ham hock, fennel and cannellini bean cassoulet. The meat arrived promptly, really securely packaged and with the freezer packs still frozen. The hocks were definitely at the upper end of the weight range given which was ideal! I ordered three and ended up only using 2 - one is in the freezer ready for a future meal. Can't wait! The two I used for the cassoulet were delicious, nice proportion of fat for succulent slow cooking. Would highly recommend Kimbers, their produce and their service. I would definitely order again.

Gloucester Old Spot Pork
“Once you try Gloucestershire Old Spots pork you'll turn your back on the tasteless dried up intensively reared pork forever.” Derek Cooper on the BBC Food Programme
Our Gloucester Old Spot piglets are selected from a small number of small holders who keep them in a free range system, allowing them to exhibit natural behaviours such as rooting for food and wallowing in the summer.
We purchase the piglets at 8 -10 weeks, where they are moved to deep straw bedded traditional pigstys with an outside pen. The pigs are fed on the best balanced proprietary food and a spot of milk.
Using an English slow growing breed of pig, in particular the Gloucester Old Spot, the pork is sweet with just the right amount of fat to assist flavour and cooking - and the crackling is something else!
