The average portion size is half a pound (227g) per person for all raw meat.
Please see below for a rough guide on how many people our Swiss Farm joints of meat will feed.
Our chickens are larger than normal and will feed up to 6 people! If you have leftovers, making a chicken pie or soup is a great way to use it up, both being a simple meal to feed the family.
Leg of lamb
Our leg of lamb is large enough to feed between 5-7 people. However, if you can’t manage it all then don’t let your leftover lamb sit in the back of the fridge, create a delicious lamb curry using curry paste and your favourite spices.
One of our lamb shoulders will feed between 5 – 7 people. If you have any leftovers, why not make a hotpot with your favourite veg and if you have any leftover gravy, you can chuck that in too!
A pork loin will serve between 8 – 10 people, perfect for a family roast. If you can’t quite manage the whole loin of pork for dinner, you can chop up the leftovers and add to a tomato sauce to create a tasty pasta sauce!
Our pork shoulders can serve up to 18 people, however our butchers can chop the meat into smaller joint sizes if you wish to freeze some. Or why not use your leftovers to shred up and use in a crusty roll for a delicious pulled pork sandwich.
Our pork legs can feed up to 20 people, but if you haven’t got that many to feed then our butchers can chop the meat into smaller joint sizes ready for you to freeze. Or if you have any leftovers, chop up the pork and add as a topping to a homemade pizza!
Gammon (main leg)
Our main leg gammon joint can serve up to 20 people, or you can have your meat chopped into smaller joint sizes by our butchers. Use your leftover gammon to make an easy breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Why not cut up your gammon and use it in an omelette along with your favourite fillings.
Gammon (top leg)
A top leg of gammon is enough to feed between 6 – 8 people. You can use leftover gammon to make a simple grilled toastie for your lunch, or a tasty carbonara pasta.
