Our Blythburgh pork comes from the herd of free range pigs that are reared on the picturesque north Suffolk coast. These pigs benefit from being reared for four weeks longer that conventionally reared pigs to allow the delicious flavour and mouth watering succulence to develop fully.
The pigs that produce Blythburgh Free Range Pork are born outside and spend their entire lives outdoors in the fresh air, with freedom to roam in large paddocks, rooting around in our sandy Suffolk soil and playing with their peers.
They have shelter when they need it, in the form of large airy tented barns in each paddock with plenty of bedding straw. This extra space and activity not only ensures a vastly improved standard of living and welfare, but also results in the pigs growing at a slower rate, for the simple reason that they are burning off more calories than a pig enclosed in a concrete pen for all of it's life.
By growing at a much slower, more natural rate, Blythburgh Free Range Pork acquires a traditional flavour and succulence that has been largely forgotten in today's mass produced pork.
