A Celebration of Pannage Pork
2022

A little bit of New Forest tradition / history for you... the ancient practice of pannage involves commoners (people who occupy the land which gives them the rights to turn their animals out onto the forest) releasing pigs into the forests to eat the fallen acorns and nuts - as they are poisenous to the cows and ponies that free roam. The tradition dates back to William the Conqueror who founded the New Forest in 1079. Pannage pork - similar to 'Iberico' is a real delicacy, the flavours are intensified by the diet of acorns, the meat is darker and more tender and is pretty lean also.
