Landrace Piglets

30 January 2017

We're pleased to announce the arrival of our latest litter of piglets, which arrived on Thursday 26th January.

British Landrace pigs are classified as "endangered" by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as there are less than 200 registered breeding females in the UK. Landrace pigs are valued for their ability to produce and rear large litters of pigs. They are often crossed with other breeds to share these breeding qualities, which is why purebreds are now so rare.

The eight piglets will stay with their mother, Kate, until they are around six weeks old.

As you can see in the photo, they are very small at the moment. Pop in to visit us soon and see how much they have grown.‚Äč
