Our pigs live outside all the time.  Come rain or shine, they roam the fields and shelter in a cosy pig arc. 

Our Horkesley Porkers' diet is rich in everything they can dig up with added nuts, fruit, acorns and anything else we can forage from the farm and local orchards.  The result is full-flavoured pork with exceptional crackling.

The best pork! We love to come and visit the pigs on Water Lane and help out a feeding time. The pigs are so happy and the taste is incredible. The crackling is the
best ever!

Why is free range important to us? 

Our pig herd started as a way to clear areas of the farm that had become overgrown.  This was the perfect labour-saving solution - pigs love to snuffle, explore and play in a wide and varied environment, and the farmers were pretty tired.

Free range living allows for natural expression of behaviour and makes for happier, healthier pigs and better quality, healthier, more flavoursome pork. 

Our bale-smashing, hole digging, tunnelling pigs are traditional breeds and as with the beef, we rear them slowly which creates flavour and colour in the meat - you'll be amazed at the difference to supermarket meat.

We put the first pigs to work and haven't looked back, welcoming the first litter of piglets to be born on the farm for over 60 years.  And best of all, Jenny loves pigs because they are late to bed and late to rise; just one of many similarities.
