Sure! Why not? Just wrap it well in foil or freezer paper, then put it into a freezer bag.

I freeze them all the time. In fact, I purchase them frozen from an organic farmer at the Greenmarket. And I've also successfully frozen the cooked beans and hocks.

And really one should never be without a ham hock at the ready!

I frequently make a "hock stock" and freeze it. Usually just the smoked hock and water in the slow cooker. Then I bag it in portions to freeze. Then making braised greens or field peas with a really rich flavor takes less time.
