Our animals

Paddock Farm is home to the largest herd of Tamworth pigs in the country. Our animals live wholesome, stress-free lives in fields and pastures. We genuinely care about their wellbeing, and we’re involved at each stage of their lives to make sure everything is done right, from birth through to butchery.

The Tamworth breed is central to our aims and philosophy on Paddock Farm. We set out to produce pork that tastes and looks amazing, and which makes best use of truly British pigs in an environmentally conscious manner.

We have around 70 breeding sows on the farm, giving us a total of around 600 pigs on the farm at any one time. Our first two sows, Rebecca and Amy, were named after friends and surprisingly the naming proved so popular most of our sows are now named after friends and family. Each sow has a very individual personality and we know each by name.

We’ve got a group of eight boars, each from different breeding lineage, which are kept busy all year round keeping the sows in-pig. All our porkers are bred on-farm so we can guarantee full traceability of our pork.
