We have 2 sows, Candy our Gloucestershire Old SPot and Belatrix. our OSB XBerkshire sow.
We also have Ronald our young GOS boar.
Belatrix had a lovely litter this year and we are runnung on 3 of her litter foe meat, Sonny, Violet and Hugo.
Sadly Candy lost her litter of 10 when they were born 4 weeks early. We still don't know why.
We had to say a sad goodbye to Kylie our other GOS sow , she had started having trouble getting around so we decided it was time for her to go to the butchers before her condition got worse.
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.
