Adopt a Pig

Why adopt a pig?

 

Many people would love to own their own pig and know where their food comes from but don't have the facilities or time to rear their own pigs.

 

We have an adopt a pig scheme where you can buy one of our piglets and we will rear it for you until it is ready to provide you with delicious meat.

 

What will it cost ?

 

At the moment we charge £200. An initial deposit of £50( the cost of an 8 week old weaner) payable at the start of the process and £150 for the upkeep of your piglet payable before delivery to the abattoir.

 

We do not pay for slaughter and butchery costs. This is your responsibility and costs vary depending on the size of pig and how you want it butchered. 

 Basic slaughter and cutting costs at the moment are £55. Sausages and Gammon cost  extra.
