"Probably the best pork you've ever tasted"

What makes our pork taste so good is that our traditional rare breed Gloucester old spot pigs born here on the farm spend all of thier lives outdoors rooting around under the oak trees developing a truly unforgetable flavour and delicous crackling. All our pigs are fed G.M. free feeds, which do not contain growth promoters or unnatural additives and are raised to the highest welfare standards.

The meat is hung for a week to ensure the best flavour and then is butchered here on the farm in our on farm butchery. Our Gloucester old spot sausages and cured meats are produced without preservatives, nitrates or additives.
