LOCAL PIG FARM IN BROWNTOWN, VA

GLOUCESTER OLD SPOT PIGS

Gloucester Old Spots are characterized by their large black spots and lop ears which flop forward covering their eyes. Folklore claims the large black spots are bruises caused by apples falling onto them as they foraged the orchard floors for food.

Gloucester Old Spot Pigs

Our local pig farm provides a comfortable environment for our pigs. Our pigs enjoy being outdoors and are intelligent, sociable animals with very clean habits. They all enjoy being given a pat or a hug.

In hot weather we ensure they have wallows so that they can roll in the mud and use it as a sun screen.

In the winter they spend more time asleep and make a cosy nest from straw in their arks. They are very good at digging, using their immensely strong snouts as ploughs.

Local Pig Farm

This old country breed produces meat that isn’t a bit like supermarket pork. It’s moist and sumptuous and you get a proper crackling. We’re a local pig farm in Browntown, VA whose pigs are born on the farm and reared outdoors where they can dig freely and graze on grass.

We feed them on non-GMO which contain corn, wheat, barley and minerals, and they also get apples and acorns.
