Hi Alison

Thanks for sorting the half pig out for me. I enjoyed butchering it on Sunday and I have to say that the joint I cooked on Sunday night was fantastic.

The leg is swimming in a cider brine ready for a gammon feast for some friends in May and the shoulder and back fat are just waiting for me to find the time to re-stock my meat safe in my birch tree with fresh salami and chorizo. I will have to do this again . I really fancy having an air dried ham in my safe for a year or two to see how it develops but that needs to be put in salt in September. Will you have any pigs available then?
