believe that it is important to give our pigs a natural environment in
which to forage - so we only raise about 15 pigs per year between
spring and autumn, which means our little paddock gets the winter
months to recover and regrow. Our pigs are fed a high quality diet of
cereal based pig nuts containing all the essential vitamins and
minerals supplemented with all the excess vegetables and fruit from our
allotment and orchard. They have a natural wallow (fed from our well)
in which to bathe and two sturdy, dry, straw-filled arks to keep them
snug. It is our belief that a happy pig is a tasty pig!
