This is a fairly new venture to the farm, currently we buy in weaned piglets and rear them in straw bedded yards in the barn. The piglets are bought from various outdoor rare breed pig farmers in the area.
We decided to rear traditional breeds because of their superior flavour and eating qualitiy over modern commercial breeds. Many of are customers have commented how the pork tastes like it use to years ago.
The pigs are fed a diet of our own wheat and barley and travel only a short distance to a local abbattoir. They are then returned to the farm shop and the pork is available fresh from our butchers counter. For recipe ideas visit www.lovepork.co.uk.
If you are planning something special or wish to order a whole or half pig please phone ahead to speak to a butcher 01788 832966.
