The Tamworth Pig

At the farm, we raise Tamworth pigs. The Tamworth is a heritage breed native to Ireland. Unlike many breeds of swine, the Tamworth has not been bread to live inside. It's dark skin and thick red and ginger hair make it the only pig not susceptible to sunburn, and keep him warm in the winter. Our pigs live outside year round, grazing, eating roots and bugs living the life a pig loves. Being aloud to eat there natural diet provides us with a meat that is leaner and more flavorful. Pigs that feed on pasture are also one of the few meat sources that provide omega 3 fatty acids. These pigs are not the other white meat!
