THE ULTIMATE FOODIE GIFT

Gourmet, epicure, foodie or just a lover of good food, some of us just know what we like to eat.  Finding an appropriate gift can nevertheless be hard work, that's where our Pig Gift Pack comes in.  It makes a great gift and is also perfect for parties, events, wedding receptions, or anytime you are hosting a large gathering.  Perfect for a family, too, as the meat can be frozen or cured for later use.

And having been named one of BBC Good Food Magazines 3 of the best - you can't go wrong!



The Ultimate Foodie Gift has got to be a traditionally reared rare breed pig raised especially for the recipient, with optional photo's and updates and ultimately butchered, bagged and labeled ready to cook cure or freeze!!!!

Now we appreciate that wrapping a whole pig might be somewhat problematical, not to mention keeping it chilled, so we’ve developed the Pig Gift Pack which is a simple way to give that special someone a unique gift!

The Pig Gift Pack comprises a gift voucher, a photograph of some of the pigs we raise feeding at the trough, a 3D gift card left blank for you to write your own personal message which can stand in the home as a reminder for many months, a fridge magnet again a great reminder of what's soon to fill their fridge, and an optional mug to be presented to the recipient.

The gift voucher gives details to the recipient of how the scheme works and how to contact us in their own time to start their scheme to redeem a whole pig, butchered, bagged and labeled ready to cook, cure or freeze.  The voucher has six months to be redeemed, which means to start the scheme, and the scheme can run outside of this period.

In the pack the recipient is given a link to our special pig scheme website which explains why the meat from rare breed pigs tastes so fantastic, why eating rare breed pigs actually helps to conserve them for the future, information about the cuts they will get and some recipe tips on what to do with them, and some advice on sausage making and curing bacon. The recipient will also be entitled to our news giving the goings on at our farm and giving updates about their pig.

Yes that’s right, their pig!  If they wish, they will be able to select their pig from a litter and follow it’s progress until it is ready to eat including visiting their pig!  But of course if they want their pig quicker, then we can supply a pre fattened porker, which has been raised in exactly the same way usually within 3 weeks.

A whole gifted pig usually costs £286.50 and typically will be at least 50kgs of quality meat, so that represents excellent value at roughly £5.70/kg. Remember, this is not commercial produced pork factory farmed, this is rare breed pork traditionally reared both outdoors and in deep straw filled barns as naturally as possible producing superbly juicy meat with roasting joints with proper crackling!

Complete traceability is assured as every pig is born here on our farm.  That's right, we don't buy in stock or contract out our fattening.  We have breeding sows and boars here on our farm, and we fatten the litters here on our farm with feed mixed on our farm until they are ready and up to weight, and then take them to our local abattoir.

The price includes a whole pig with butchery to the recipients specification for collection from our farm, or of course the recipient can arrange for us to deliver their pig to them the cost typically being £20.99.

Want to share a pig? That’s no problem at all! If you want additional Gift Pack’s for a share in your pig, we can provide these for an additional £7.50/pack.  Just ask!  We will send you additional gift vouchers to gift, and each recipient will receive their own updates on the pigs progress.  Pigs can be fairly evenly shared into two halves, or split into quarters.  The half or quarter pigs will be butchered, bagged and labelled and come separately, and can be either collected from our farm or delivered to one common address on the same day.

Why not treat yourself!  You won't buy better.
