Sorry folks, we have to miss the next Farmer’s Market on 15th Feb – family wedding. But no problem – CALL BARBARA ON 01495 755557, PLACE AN ORDER, AND WE CAN DELIVER LOCALLY. We’ll be back at the Market on 1st March with pork, lamb and mutton.
It should be nearly Spring then. shouldn’t it? Or at least stopped raining?
We’ve had two more good litters from our Tamworth pigs this month. They are all under cover in this weather, but turned out into the fields for a run around when the sun shines.

We have found a reliable courier, and can now send chilled or frozen meat, usually half pig / lamb or more, overnight to Wales, Midlands and southern England, maybe further. We have to add delivery charges to our discounted counter prices, however, but our long distance customers think it is well worth it!
We have available a few frozen suckling pigs at £100 plus delivery – they make a super tasty and different Christmas dinner – a few boxes of mixed beef joints and steaks at £200 plus delivery, and various pork boxes. Locally we shall be selling pork at Usk Farmers Market on Saturday 7th December, and perhaps 21st December. Not sure on January Markets yet. If you want something special for Christmas, do order as soon as possible. We deliver locally in our chill van, so contact us on 01495 755557 and ask if we’ve got what you want – or come up to the farm, select from out freezers and see the animals.
For smallholders, as usual we have Tamworth weaners and gilts for breeding, and always advice and assistance. But don’t call 2nd and 3rd December, we shall be tied up with the Welsh Winter Fair, the last Show this year.

SUMMER SHOW SEASON IS OVER

  • August 18, 2013 5:04 pm

We’ve finished the round of Spring / Summer pig shows we support every year, and we were pretty successful. We attained female Tamworth champ at the Three Counties, and were judged best at the show for the national Junior Pig of the Year final. Our young boar was male Tamworth champ at the Royal Welsh, and we won best progeny group and pair. We had to travel to the Great Yorkshire Show for Pig of the Year final, but in that exalted company we didn’t get the crown! And we clocked up quite a number of other red rosettes for class wins at these shows, the Royal Welsh Spring Festival, and the Royal Bath & West Show.

Winning progeny groups was probably most satisfying, it proves our breeding is going the right way, and this is reinforced by the demand for our young Tamworths for breeding, we’ve sold a lot this year in the UK, and even overseas – two exported to Germany recently!

So we’ve missed quite a few Farmers Markets, but we’ll be at Usk FM now until Christmas. Additionally, we just sold another whole pig to London, having found a reliable courier, but of course we sell most meat locally, so if you cannot get to Usk FM, contact us and we can usually deliver in the Gwent area. Or come up to the farm and select your pork, beef and lamb / mutton from our freezers – and see our animals and the superb views (if the weather is good).  Our prices are very competitive.

 

Our Top Class Meat – You Ring, we Bring

  • April 5, 2013 9:57 pm

We are not able to attend all the usual Farmers Markets over summer – committments to show our pigs often clash, and some family events. BUT DON’T PANIC! We are selling more meat (pork, beef, lamb) directly from the farm nowadays, and with Vic having passed his ‘Best Before’ date, and retired from paid employment, we can now offer local delivery (just like Sainsbury). Or you could visit the farm, see the animals, the fine views and take the mountain air.
We have been assessed for our Food Hygiene Rating – FOR THE SCORES ON THE DOORS WE HAVE BEEN AWARDED 4! And we expect to have 5 very soon.
