Know exactly how your pig lived and died.
Teach children the cycle of life and death,
Learn about pigs and how they are cared for.
Help preserve a very rare breed.
All our rare breed Large Black pigs are fed soy-free food plus local barley and our own wildflower meadow haylage. They are housed in arks made of recycled plastic, and their needs are supplied by local, independent shops as far as possible. We use a small, local, on-farm abattoir where the pigs are treated with care and respect.
£400, or share with a friend for £200
Our next available litter is due October 2023
We will retain ownership of the pig for legal reasons, and your pig will be will cared for and fed alongside our other pigs. You are free to visit as you wish (let us know when you are coming), spend time with him or her, help with the regular care, feeding etc. When the time comes we will help you put together a cutting list and will take the pig to the abattoir, then you can either collect the meat directly from the abattoir, or from Berllan.
If adopting with a friend, please visit together.
