OUR Pigs

Our Gloucester Old Spot herd now includes 14 pedigree sows and 2 boars called Boris and Rufus.  This lop-eared breed of pigs is very good-natured and more interested in rooting around the farm than exploring, unlike its prick eared relatives. 

We slowly rear each pig outdoors over 26 weeks, for longer and slower, to give it more flavor.  When we were researching what pigs to rear on the farm, we chose Gloucester Old Spot pigs as we felt they were the breed best suited to our land and also the best tasting!
