A pig is at the heart of any traditional smallholding. Nothing from the orchard or the veg garden is wasted when you keep pigs and no other animal produces such a wide variety of meat. At Sunnyside Smallholding we breed pedigree Oxford Sandy and Black pigs. They produce a good carcass, amazing pork and have to be the best looking of all the rare breeds. As well as providing us with pork and sausages, we also cure our own bacon and hams producing a traditional product that is just not available commercially. Weaners are often available for sale throughout the year.
