Free Range Pork

free range pigsWe have an opportunity to buy some free range outdoor reared pork from Allendale in the North Pennines.

Broadwood Bridge Farm run a very small scale smallholding, with woodland, pasture and hay meadow to support a few free range pigs, sheep, cows and poultry along with two working horses who extract timber from ours and other local woodlands. Two or three times a year they have outdoor bred and reared Large Black crossed with Welsh pigs, fed mainly on barley and peas grown on a farm in Haydon Bridge.

They are keen to work with us and if any of our members would like to visit their small-holding they would be keen to show us round.

The next pork will be available later this week so you need to be quick if you want to order!! There are 2 options below – if you’d like to place an order please email and we’ll put an order in on behalf of the cooperative – please let us know by Saturday if you can, or early next week if not. Please also let us know if you’d be interested in this in the future but just not now.
