Local free-range pork
We collected 20 kilos of pork today from friends who had kindly offered to share a free-range pig from local farmer Gordon. The pig comes from the next road over from ours in Franklin and the meat was butchered just across the river at the local Cradoc Abattoir, which was happily saved from closing down recently. We now have roast, cutlets, mince, chops, hocks, all sorts of pork bits. I am very happy about this purchase. Aside from it being from a local happy pig, pork is my favourite meat and I already have a pile of dishes in mind to cook. Looking forward to it.
