I just got my pork box and my husband couldn't be happier with his present, last night's toad in the hole was epic. I do wish I'd had a heads up it was coming, so I'd had more freezer space....

Love what you're doing and your passion for doing it. I wish all farming was like this. Good luck sorting the land, and hope to get to taste your products at some point. Happy to back you, and will keep following your journey.

I hope you manage to find some more land for your beautiful pigs. I admire your ethos so much - we need more people who care about farming ethically!

Josephine Williamson 30th June 2020

I love your dream and believe this is the way to farm animals. I truly hope you survive this time and can continue to take your project forward to its next step. I love the idea of the extra woodland for your older sows.

I only wish I could give more...I think what you're doing is amazing and I love seeing the posts of you caring for your lovely piggles. My partner and I are photographers and I for one would love to visit one day and take some pictures of them..though you do a brilliant job yourself! Keep going and best of luck!

I love your commitment and the way you raise your pigs as part of a rich and biodiverse world. very proud to support you. You're an incredible young man and a beacon for the future.

Declan Murphy 28th June 2020

Hi. I’m contributing to your cause because I believe you are farming the right way and promoting biodiversity and fantastic animal welfare standards. It’s great to see someone young adopt such a progressive philosophy. Brexit will be even more challenging given the governments posturing to the US and their appalling animal welfare and food standards. Farmers look like they’ve been abandoned. I hope you are preparing for this. I would buy pork/bacon from you if you sold online as I’m based in Cardiff. Best of luck.

I really enjoyed reading the information about your approach as a farmer. Your passion for what you do and how you care for the pigs is beautiful. Best of luck in your career!

My meat boxes sell out in 24 hours. They are building a reputation for being the best pork you will ever taste and some high profile West Country chefs are now looking to buy the meat to serve to their guests. If you’d like to buy a box in advance that would be so helpful and definitely save my bacon. The boxes contain joints, chops, loin, belly, ribs, sausages and offal.
