HERITAGE BREED PIGS
We are excited to announce we are now breeding our own pigs here on the farm!
We have secured fantastic breeding stock from Farmer John, who has now retired. We are working hard to fill his gumboots and maintain the high-quality breeding standards he is well-known for.
At Coghlan Cottage we raise Berkshire and Gloucester Old Spot heritage breed pigs. Our mama pigs are raised outside full-time and are allowed to farrow and raise their piglets in the fresh air. No gestation crates, no concrete. Ever.
Heritage breed pigs are hardy, easy-to-care-for animals. We select our animals for temperament and give them lots of love and handling. This is loads of fun, but it also makes regular care and vet visits a whoooooole lot easier.
Heritage pork is much tastier than commercial "pink pigs" and commands a premium price in our local market.
We will have a round of piglets ready to go to new homes late August.
