The crosscut pork hock is basically just what it sounds (and looks) like: A crosscut piece of the animal's leg. It's full of tendons and muscle, and a chunk of bone. It doesn't look very pretty, and if you tried to cook it fast, it would be tough and hard to chew. But if you cook this meat low and slow, the marrow in that bone melts out, helping create a smooth, rich sauce, and the meat itself gets melting and tender. Inexpensive, incredibly delicious!

Our rare heritage hogs are born and raised on the farm and spend their entire lives on pasture. They are fed a diet of pasture grasses and roots, with supplemental hay and a small amount of soy-free, corn-free, and GMO-free grain. They also receive treats of eggs, fruits, nuts and vegetables raised here on the farm. All our meats are produced without added hormones or antibiotics. USDA-inspected & processed for health and safety.
