This farm, on the North Yorkshire Moors, is the base of excellent Ginger Pig operation.
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 coming 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 reared 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 have an excellent shop in nearby Pickering, which will offer you more choice. Plus two excellent outlets in London (q.v.), if you happen to be in those parts.
