Our pigs are the only animals that are not born on the farm as we buy in 8 week old weaners from the farm at the local college in Dorchester, Kingston Maurward. They are the traditional Landrace x Large White or the Saddleback x Large White breeds, and are bedded on our own barley straw and fed with our own home-grown ground barley and milk from the dairy. The resulting pork, ham and bacon are succulent, full of flavour with excellent crackling! Occasionally we struggle to keep up with the demand for pigs so we source the same breed pigs that are reared in a similar fashion from Mr. Reakes who farms in Blandford, North Dorset.
We offer a variety of high meat content sausages (80% plus pork) including traditional recipes like plain pork sausages and chipolatas, pork and leek, pork and chorizo to name a few. Our gammons, back bacon and streaky bacon are dry-cured to our own recipe, some of which we get smoked locally for 36 hours over oak or apple chippings.
