Our organic, traditional-breed pigs usually live in our small orchard and are slaughtered at about 6 months and hung for a week before being butchered. We often have Saddleback or Gloucester Old Spot or Berkshire, often crossed with a larger breed so that we can have sausages.
We have yet to grow the business but we regularly have between 3 and 6 pigs and we sell pork in sides (half the pig, about 20lbs in all), jointed, bagged, labelled and (usually) frozen and with recipes for the less common cuts.
A quarter usually comprises a shoulder, a leg, belly of pork, loin, loin chops and plenty of sausages.
We know the history of each of our animals in great detail and are able to vouch for the integrity of its meat. If you want to know more about it, please do not hesitate to email us.
We can deliver our pork ourselves within a radius of about 20 miles of the farm, in Bristol/Bath, and also within much of central London for free. We regularly drive up the A303 and the M3, or the M5 and the M4, so we can deliver close to those roads and we do a fairly regular delivery as well to Oxford. Otherwise we can deliver fresh frozen anywhere in the country on a next day basis.
We are happy to help with cooking suggestions and recipes.
