An excellent butcher.
As the name implies, the main event is their excellent pork produced from free-range pigs on a cereal based diet containing no drugs, artificial growth promoters, animal by-products or GM ingredients. The company name comes from the colouring of the pigs, many of which are the excellent 'Tamworth' breed - although they also rear Berkshires, English Lops, Gloucester Old Spots and Welsh pigs. Chicken, beef-cattle (Longhorn's) & lamb (Blue Face Leicesters, Swaledale and Texels) are also produced in the same fashion - the last two being reared on grass & winter hay with no food concentrates.
They also produce dry-cured bacon, ham, sausages and excellent pork pies. Prices are very reasonable for meat of this quality. They now have two excellent outlets in London (q.v.) - with another due to open soon in Hackney. You can also collect some items, by arrangement, from their farm in nearby Levisham; but you'll have more choice in the shop.
