At Kilnford we are proud that our pig herd has been awarded the highest welfare standard, SSPCA Freedom Foods award.
Our breeding herd of sows are cross-bred with Duroc pigs, a breed carefully selected because of their increased fat cover and good mothering ability, so that they are really well suited to rearing their piglets outdoors. This extra fat throughout the tissue, as well as extra iron from the soil produces pork that is full of flavour and also has that tasty marbling throughout the joint.
Our butchers are skilled at curing all of our own ham and bacon right here on-site at Kilnford and, with no added water, lots of customers comment how it does not shrink when they pop it in the frying pan! Customers are loving it.
We hope you will come and try some for yourself – maybe you too will find “it’s the best you’ve ever tasted…”
