Pigs

British Saddle
backs

A rare breed great for land management

Did you know there are more giant pandas in the world than there are pedigree British Saddleback pigs? It’s crucial we keep these rare breeds going.

All of our pigs graze pastures and woodlands, supplemented with home grown barley and whey from the neighbouring organic dairy farmer and cheese maker.

We move them to dry ground in colder months where they can help cultivate the old leys (land temporarily put down to grass). They also enjoy grazing on fields of arable stubble.

All of our animals play an important role in the farm system, making use of all resources and ensuring nothing goes to waste.
