Berkshire Pigs are the oldest native breed pig in the UK, known to feed Oliver Cromwell's army in the English Civil War. There are less than 200 breeding sows left worldwide. In buying this pork, you are directly helping to conserve the breed by providing commercial viability.
Our Rare Breed Berkshire Pork is produced in an outdoor, free range system, providing optimal animal welfare whilst at the same time allowing the meat to mature.
Sows farrow in open pens and rear their weaners naturally to provide optimal animal welfare conditions.
Produced and processed locally, our pork has travelled less than 30 food miles in its whole life, therefore it has 100% traceability and the lowest possible carbon footprint.
Unless requested otherwise, our pork is delivered frozen, vacuum packed and labelled. The box will include approx 44kg of meat cut as follows:
Legs de-boned & rolled, cut into 2kg joints
Half Belly cut into Pork Belly Bites
One shoulder cured into a deboned & rolled Ham
One shoudler cured and cut into shoulder bacon.
Half belly cured and cut into streaky bacon
Remainder on request:
Up to 5kg of diced pork
Up to 5kg of pork mince
Sausage flavours as follows:
- Pork & Apple
- Pork & Leak
- Pork & Chilli
If you would like your pig cut differently, please let us know. If you would like mince, hamburgers or diced pork please let us know.
Pigs are slaughtered on a Tuesday and available for dispatch 3 Friday's later due to the curing period.
