Our PigsWe only supply our own home reared "Cornish Black" rare breed pigs, which are reared the traditional way, totally outdoors. They are allowed to not only "graze" our fine grass, but are allowed to root around under our 20 odd Oak trees in a natural way, turning over the ground and getting all the goodness they need from the roots and minerals. A spring fed stream flows through the bottom of their fields, next to the "Saints Way" footpath.
We do not use chemicals or growth enhancements and we do not use any medications unless absolutely necessary. There is no need to use routine vaccinations as used in other rearing units due to conditions and clean ground our pigs are reared on.
We only farm the "Cornish Black" rare breed and they have a wonderful stress free life. They are allowed to mature slower, usually twice as long, then the meat is hung for 10 days (the only pig we know that you can hang) leading to a far superior tasting meat.

The Large Black was founded mainly on the native stock of Devon and Cornwall, and is still known as the "Cornish Black" in many parts of the world. Sows have very good maternal qualities, and the breed is noted for its fecundity. The Guinness Book of Records lists a Large Black belonging to A M Harris of Lapworth, Warwickshire, as having produced the largest number of litters (26) between 1940 and 1952.
They are distinguished by their gigantic size, they are the largest of the kind I have ever seen, and as perfect a make as possible in pigs... their heads are large, with very long ears hanging down on each side of the face, so they can scarcely see their way.Parkinson, 1810
