These breeds of pig have fallen away over the years as the demand for cheaper meat by the supermarket has driven the price down and productivity up. They are all ‘slow growing ‘ so not commercially viable to the big sellers on the high street.
Our customers today are more interested in the provenance and quality of their bacon -its breed, how it is raised and of the course the outstanding flavour and texture.
We have linked with as many farmers in the area that produce for us the various breeds. We then cure the pork to our same exacting standards as all our other bacon.
As supply is limited if you wish to register your interest email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you when it is ready.
We all recognise this one as the ‘ginger pig’ and considered as one of Britain’s oldest breeds. It has a lean look about it-long snout and long legs-they are excellent rotavators’.
Rated by us as producing the very finest bacon. Now considered as a vulnerable breed by the Rare Breed Survival Trust.
A hardy pig that lives outdoors all year round, certainly active and inquisitive. They are great escape artists as well which keeps the farmers busy with the fencing!
