We’re all about high welfare, superior quality meat, and that’s why all of the pork that we sell is free range. We source all of our pork from Rob Mercer at Packington Farm in Staffordshire. We work with Rob because not only does he produce the most exceptional meat, but he’s also a Staffordshireite, like us, which means we can do our bit to reduce food miles.
All of Rob’s pigs are completely free-range, born outside and grown outside, raised according to the absolute highest animal welfare standards. When you buy pork from us, you can be assured that welfare standards are of paramount importance. Working with Rob also gives us the benefit of being able to choose gilts (female pigs), which produce an all together more enjoyable flavour.
We use free range pork in our sausages too; no shortcuts here!
All of the pigs that we source are raised in small family groups, free to range, root and wallow in the sunshine, supplementing their diets with anything they happen to snuffle up during their endless rooting, producing proper pork, with proper crackling.
