Cattle consume a third of the world's grain.

The Chinese were preserving and salting pork bellies around 1500BC

Enjoying the sunshine, the pigs and the bees!

We love taking visitors on tours to our site and to our pork farm in Suffolk, Dingley Dell.  They really enjoyed visiting the pigs and walking around the farm on a beautiful summers day.  

There were able to see where fields have been planted with a real diversity of native plants to entice the bumblebees as well as other insects, small mammals and birds. All this amongst where the happy pigs dwell!
