At the moment we only have 1 sows with us. Belatrix, our OSB XBerkshire sow.
We have 4 of her latest litter with us, Fudge who will be staying with us as a breeding sow and 3 of her sisters, Bonbon, Smartie and Licorice who we are raising for meat.
Depending on time of year and weather conditions we can vary the way we keep our pigs.
During winter they sleep indoors with access during the day to the yard.
We are lucky having the large building on the moat field which means they have plenty of space when we have larger numbers. They do get a chance to have a run in the field if conditions are suitable.
During the warmer months they live outside.
We sell weaners (most to regular customers) We keep our best weaners to sell on as breeding stock when they are older.
We are experimenting with an adopt a pig scheme. This is for people who would like their own pork but aren't in a position to rear it themselves. Please contact us if you would like details as there are a number of ways we can do this.
We also sell pork when we have any available, our sausages are always popular.
