Whether it is the light sandy free draining soil in the coastal area of Suffolk or the pasture covered chalk on the Kent North Downs, the free-range pigs have ideal conditions for a free range life cycle at Orchard Farm. On these farms the young pigs are fed with a highly nutritious creep and wiener diet to encourage growth and enhance gut condition for optimum health and happiness.
Then with a carefully balanced diet including as much as 20% apple pulp from a local cider factory added to the cereal and protein to encourage appetite and enhance the flavour of the finished pork.
Growing pigs will be housed in social groups with free access to well strawed tented lodges which are nice and snug in winter and cool in summer in a large paddock area overlooking the river Alde and its estuary.
Straw is gathered at harvest from numerous local farms in order to provide nice warm bedding of a manipulable material with which the pig can play or chew.
Only the most suitable breeds are used combining lifestyle with eating quality.
Some of our free range pigs are guided into large outdoor pens with tents later on to help with growth. These we class as outdoor reared.
