The hock is the ankle joint, cut from between the lower leg and the foot of the pig. This fresh cut contains a lot of tendons and ligaments which will break down during slow cooking and infuse your dish with both incredible pork flavor and a rich, silky texture.
You'll receive 1 unsmoked hock per package, weighing approximately 1lb.

All of our pigs here at John Henry's are fed a mix of non-GMO corn, oats, and alfalfa, and they also love to rut around in the dirt outside looking for more snacks to eat! They are raised locally, and they are never given any hormones or antibiotics. Our fields and feed are never exposed to harsh chemicals or pesticides. Our pigs are pasture-raised and spend their days being outside as much as they wish!
