Just to say that we enjoyed our time sausage making with you very much. The sausages are curing in the fridge, but the rest of the meat was formed into burgers and grilled on the bbq tonight. They were really wonderful and even my vegetarian son could not resist taking a bite and pronounced them as tasting like "proper" pork rather than some of the concoctions you buy from the shops.
We can't wait to have the sausages tomorrow.
Plan now for Pork
In the first week of September 2011 we will start to have half and quarter pigs available from the current batch we are growing on. We only have a limited number, so it is essential to book now and start planning your freezer space.
To reserve your delicious meat contact us NOW at email@example.com and we will discuss how you want to have your half/quarter butchered.
Hook Farm Pigs
The Gloucester Old Spot was officially recognised as a breed in 1913, but had been in existence for at least two hundred years before that. It is also known as the orchard pig, because it was commonly kept in the apple orchards of Gloucestershire. It is folklore that the spots came from bruises caused by the falling apples.
We keep Boris our breeding boar and Florence our sow to do their bit towards keeping the Gloucester Old Spot breed alive and well.
We sell some weaners and grow others on to finishing weight. We then sell half or quarter pigs to our customers who can look forward to the most delicious pork meat with crackling to die for!
Have a look at what we offer on the website and contact us if we can help you with anything. We very much look forward to meeting you on a course, making sausages, collecting your half pig or buying a weaner.
We are passionate about Gloucester Old Spots and our website will tell you everything about what we do and offer at Hook Farm:spotty piggies
We have two second hand pig feeders for sale. They are operated by the pig pushing the treadle and releasing the food onto the plate and are very useful during the ad lib feeding of weaners. They are very sturdy and well designed with metal loops to be moved by tractor if needed.
They are £100 each.
