Slow-reared the old-fashioned way

We specialise in heritage-breed and slow-reared pork. The pig’s welfare is prioritised, our Saddleback pigs are raised on pasture and fed diet-free from additives, growth promoters or routine antibiotics. They live outside their entire lives and graze, forage and root around all day long, they have even been known to play the odd game of football!

High-quality pork

The Saddleback is a true all-rounder, producing high-quality pork of excellent texture and outstanding flavour. The care given, results in a higher fat content in the meat, which makes for the most incredible crackling. If you would like to know more about our pigs, please contact us. We supply pork across Durham and throughout Newcastle upon Tyne.

    Tried the saddle back pork loin steaks. Excellent quality and flavour with a good layer of fat that melts nicely to help keep the meat moist. Excellent customer service and good value for money for locally reared produce from a family run farm.

    I was lucky enough to try the saddle back pork from this business and I have to say that it was so very very good. I literally didn’t know pork was supposed to taste that good. Thank you very much, I’m looking forward to trying more in the future. Thanks…
