Sometimes amazing and exciting opportunities come along and Pebworth Porkers is definitely one of these!
It was reported by the British Nutrition Foundation (BNF) that lots of children are blissfully unaware of where the food they eat comes from. In this study it was revealed that almost a third of UK primary pupils think cheese is made from plants and they were unaware that chips or made from potatoes. This lack of association shows to be even greater where meat products are concerned and the animals it originates from.
The brain child of our local farmer Nick, Pebworth Porkers is a local co-operative where we rear our own pigs from start to finish, learning where are sausages and bacon come from. We share the work load and cost or rearing outdoor pigs and at the same time it is a great opportunity for children to really understand the farm to fork process.
So we are signed up! Using our four very own “mini Maypole’s” as guinea pigs we will keep you updated of our new family farming journey! Look out for our first family blog around the middle of March. Also if you feel that this is something that your family would be interested in the get in touch with us and we will give you all the details. We will even help you turn your well raised pigs into your own fantastic home cured bacon and sausages.
