Saddleback Pork joint

This is the first time i have bought pork from the farm and was slightly nervous having always used the same supplier. Christmas lunch is an important meal and to move away from my comfort zone was a huge step. I needn't have worried. I followed the usual cooking times but added apples, onions and sage top the water to the pan. The crackling was crispy and full of flavour. The meat was delicious, fell apart as we carved and was very juicy. We used the pork juices to make the gravy which created silky viscous gravy for the lunch. It is apparent the welfare of the animals is a priority from the flavour of the meat. I cannot sing the praises of this farm enough!!! I'm now a devoted customer

Hi Patricia, Thank you so much for trying our Pedigree Pork for such an important family meal ! We like to think the taste of our pedigree meat speaks for itself, but its always nice to receive a thumbs up from our customers. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. It makes all the difference and helps get our message out there. Thanks again Garry n Jane @ Bushblades

Alpaca walk.

A fantastic day for a Mother’s Day surprise walking with Alpacas.
The location was stunning and the Alpacas were gorgeous. We learnt a lot about the Alpacas and farming life.
The family were so friendly and welcoming, we had a brilliant time.
We purchased some bacon from the farm shop which was delicious.
Would definitely recommend this as a great day out.

Amazing pork chops.

Tastes how meat used to taste so different throm the fast grown cheep pork from the supermarket. Full of flavor and the fat was like butter. Proper cracking as well.
