We believe that it is in all of our interests to ensure that traditional breeds of livestock are preserved for future generations.
Commercial farming has produced specialised breeds of all types of livestock that are suited to large scale intensive production. Many of these breeds have excellent qualities but are not suited to more traditional methods of farming.
So that generations to come can continue to enjoy the pleasures of raising their own food, or buying from small local producers using traditional natural methods, we need to ensure that the traditional breeds survive.
So Little Black Pig was born – a venture that we hope will help protect these fantastic animals and make our customers feel more connected to the food that they eat
We have been raising pigs in Derbyshire for 2 years now on rented land. Finally we have bought some land of our own in Worcestershire where we can be closer to our families.
So here at Little Black Pig we have decided it is time to start documenting our story.
We are still in Derbyshire, but Willow Farm in Worcestershire is starting to take shape. Over the coming weeks we will be bringing you all up to date on our progress, with pictures and stories of land purchase, fencing, tree planting, planning applications and of course THE GREAT MOVE.
