Life At The Real Pig Company

Why not follow us as we work to restore more of the fabulous woods here at The Real Pig Company...

It seems that the long warm days of Summer have been replaced with just a deluge of rain that has made this Winter hard. With the days already short and so much to try and do, the rain has really tried to scupper our every move.

Yet, everyday we remember how lucky we are and how far we have come. Our family of pigs has grown quite substantially as we look to serve not just our loyal customers but,  satisfy a growing demand that is coming from some of the regions top butchers and farm shops that value real food...

 

Since we started the Real Pig Company with just 4 Oxford Sandy & Blacks we now have a herd of 150 pigs and 21 breeding sows.

 

The real pig Company have hand reared over 170 piglets! Breeding our own stock of pigs has not just been rewarding it has given us the opportunity to get pedigree registered with the BPA (British Pig Association). 

 

The feedback we have received from all those that have ordered our pork has been phenomenal and it really has convinced us that our decision to start the Real Pig Company and rear free range, traditional & rare breed pigs was the right one.

 

You will be delighted to know that you can now buy our meat from some of Devon's finest butchers including...

 

Riverford farm Shop - Yealmpton.

Lidstones Butchers - Fore St Kingsbridge Call: 01548 852 313

Countryman's Farm Shop - Ivybridge

Gribbles Butchers-Ivybridge.

 

We are still looking to take our pork to town, and are looking supply some of our fabulous pork to the UK's leading restaurants and gastro pubs...

 

For the time being, we can only accept orders by email or phone and all telephone orders are most welcome.

We hope, that if everything goes to plan, we will soon be able to sell online so do watch this space...

 

Many thanks for all your support.

The saddlebacks are just so gentle

Well if you could give an award for temperament then it would have to be the mighty saddleback, who would win gold. For they are the gentlest of all our pigs
