James and Charlotte farm in the beautiful rolling hills of Dorset just outside the ancient market town of Sherborne.  They are passionate about Tamworths, their welfare, happiness and indeed their very existence – Tamworths are the oldest pure breed of native pig in the British Isles, most closely linked to the wild woodland pigs of a bygone age, and with a distinctive appearance due to their beautiful red-haired coats.Tamworths are most at home living outside all year round being raised on large areas of pasture, where they can root around for all manner of tasty morsels.

As native breeds, Tamworths take much longer to mature than modern breeds used in commercial intensive farming but this slow growth has its advantages when it comes to its distinctive taste.

From farm to fork, fresh not frozen

Tamworth’s are an intelligent and sensitive breed and a delight to be around and as such they know each pig on the farm individually and can trace their lineage from the day they are born. We ensure their final journey is as stress free as possible with our local abattoir just a few miles from their home.

Taste the difference

Tamworth’s don’t thrive in factory farming systems, so if you’re a regular supermarket shopper or buy from your local independent butcher you are unlikely to have ever tasted pork as good as ours. With a marbling of fat running through its meat and a generous outer layer of tasty fat, the Tamworth is revered by the nation’s top chefs who recognised its unique taste and quality – a taste of the past!

Our beliefs

At The Story Pig, our approach to producing the finest quality meat is shaped by our beliefs:

We believe in raising pigs to the highest ethical and animal welfare standards and that the happiest pigs produce the tastiest meat.

We believe in producing meat that customers can have absolute confidence in and in keeping the distance from farm to customer as short as possible.

We believe in taking a long term sustainable approach in all that we do.
