SLOW GROWING ORGANIC, FREE-RANGE, NATIVE BREEDS IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
Protecting endangered breeds are important to us, farming them is our way of preserving a piece of agricultural heritage. The Mangalitza Pig we rear on Springwater Farm has been chosen because of their natural instincts to forage to supliment their diet, as well as making great mothers, and great eating.
Flavour is of the utmost importance to us, a key factor in why we grow the breeds we do, in the way we do. Our pigs live a life longer than a conventionally farmed pig, and live a properly free-range lifestyle. As well as foraging for much of their diet they also have access to the very best non GMO feed; this is achieved by using rolled barley from other local farmers to ensure our pigs diet is of high quality but our impact on to the environment is still kept minimal. This is our formula for creating incredibly flavoursome pork - with an old fashioned deep but sweet taste.
We have our animals butchered locally, but to our specifications. We like our pigs to be butchered in to respective cuts according to how they cook and eat. They are seamed our muscle by muscle and jointed, steaked, diced or minced according the the muscles natural attributes.
Our pigs have a good layer of fat so the shoulders are excellent for making sausages, Due to their outdoor lifestyle they have also had months of beautiful sunshine beating down on them so their skin makes excellent crackling; we celebrate this by boning and rolling our pork legs and leaving the skin on our belly joints.
Don't hesitate to order, we are a relatively small farm with a limited amount of meat to sell each year. To order call Amelia on 07803 594973, if meat is unavailable we can add you to our waiting list.
