Gloucestershire Old Spot
In the Severn Valley, where it originated, the Gloucestershire Old Spot pig was traditionally raised on windfall apples and whey, products of the local agricultural enterprises. It was known at the time as the Orchard Pig.
A dual purpose breed, it is hardy and thrives out of doors. They get too fat in intensive indoor pig farms and like most non-commercial breeds, they are now extremely rare.
We often use the Old Spot for our meat products, which you can buy from the Farm Park shop.
