About Precious Porkers

A family business selling fresh free range pork & bacon products from our rare breed Berkshire pigs. We also offer hot cooked food including Sausages, Pork/Apple Burgers and Bacon Rolls

Background

The British landscape has been devastated by intensive farming of  
cereals and other non-food crops and the quality of our meat is being  
ruined by intensive rearing methods. The customers' willingness to buy  
cheap meat with no consideration of how it is produced
is driving 
this supermarket culture. We need an alternative to this supermarket  
food and our solution is to make the move back to locally produced food.

We are certainly not vegetarian. We don�t object to eating meat, we  
simply want our meat to come from animals that have been well treated  
during their life and allowed to grow in the open air. We also want our  
food to be as local as possible in order to reduce our carbon footprint. 
It may cost a little more but we know that the animals have been  
treated well and the resulting meat will be outstanding in comparison  
with factory farmed meat.

Product Description

We are looking to produce the highest quality meat. The Berkshire breed grows more slowly and produces a better quality meat. We currently have 5 breeding sows and a boar. 

The Berkshire originated in the Thames Valley.Although  
primarily black in colour, the Berkshire carcass dresses out completely  
white, and has a high proportion of lean meat to fat. The flesh is fine  
in texture, and has a distinct flavour.
