The last piece of pork middle going out for 2018. Gloucester Old Spot gilt. Hanging in the breeze for one month. You can bounce a tennis ball off the skin. Ideal. @ombrabar.restaurant @mitshelibrahim #farmertom #herefordshire #gloucesteroldspot #swine
This time of year is when #hiltonofdurris lamb is at its very best. We have plenty available for the holiday season, butchered to order and collect direct from the farm. Plenty of #gloucesteroldspot pork sausages and more in stock but starting to run low on the best flavours now! Support local producers, not the supermarkets, get in touch ASAP. HoDF xx
Time is running out to order a fresh gammon or beef joint with us for Christmas! #morrisofhoggeston #localfood #gammon #gloucesteroldspot #herefordbeef #christmasfood
Mud and sunshine. Perfect piggy heaven.

Or did he just want to practice his aerobics in our lovely #baronial dining room? #naughtyelf #gloucesteroldspot #gloucestershire #cheltenham #gloucester #tewkesbury #cotswolds #countrypub #christmas

A wonderful organic brunch this morning. Sauted mushrooms, tomatoes, fried egg, avocado and a first for me -- sow bacon. Home cured and smoked, all natural and nitrate free. Such a delicious alternative to your usual bacon. Very meaty, sweet and wonderfully smokey.. . . . . . . . #brunch #lowcarb #keto #ketobrunch #breakfast #brunchgoals #recipeinspo #motivation #susiesketokitchen #healthy #fitfood #homecook #nitratefreebacon #naturalmeat #rarebreadpork #sowbacon #smokedbacon #Gloucesteroldspot #happypig #organic #organicfarming #sustainablefood #ethicallyraised #happygut #nutrition #realmeat #realfood #healthyfood #avolove #weekendeats

We've got some tasty seasonal specials available in the Woolly Sheep Cafe throughout December to keep you warm, toasty and well fed when visiting our Santa's Grottos. Tuck in to this delicious turkey, pork and cranberry stuffing ciabatta sandwich made with UK reared free-range turkey and our special limited edition Roves Farm born and reared Pork stuffing. Make sure you check our seasonal specials board for more festive treats. #christmas #christmasmeat #christmassandwhich #butchery #fieldtofork #localbutcher #farming #wiltshire #swindon #locallysourced #turkey #gloucesteroldspot #pigsinblankets #stuffing #christmasfood #localfood #fieldtofork #localfarm #farming #oxfordshire #christmasdinner #farmshop #festivefood #advent #countdowntochristmas #wiltshire
We’re proud to be stocking UK reared turkeys this Christmas. Unlike most supermarket Turkeys, which are wet plucked, causing skin which is soft and pale and rarely perfectly crisp when cooked, ours are dry-plucked by hand, free-range and slow reared to produce succulent, flavourful meat. These quality birds make an excellent centrepiece alongside our Roves Farm born and reared beef, lamb and pork. Place your Christmas order before the 9th December using our online form ( Link in Bio ) or in person at the Farm Shop. #christmas #christmasmeat #butchery #fieldtofork #localbutcher #farming #wiltshire #swindon #locallysourced #turkey #beef #lamb #gloucesteroldspot #pigsinblankets #stuffing #christmasfood #yourneighbourhoodbutcher #localfood #fieldtofork #localfarm #farming #oxfordshire #christmasdinner

They call me BIG MAMA🎵 Next week she will go back over to BIG PAPA 🙈 Its weaning time, time for these piggies to make it on their own! The day comes for all of us, maybe just not at 9 weeks old 😂 #c5farms #iamcountryside #gloucesteroldspot #iamgeorgiagrown #farmher
Free range, native breed bacon for @farmdrop dry cured for a fortnight, hung for a week to dry, smoked over oak chips for 2x 12hr sessions and then hung again to lose further excess moisture. This is a world away from your brine cured, wet supermarket bacon. Coming to a turkey or pig in blanket near you.

Yesterday I posted and wrote briefly about the harsh necessity of piglet castration. One of you replied with a frown face, and I thank you, because it got me thinking. . . Sometimes I divulge farm realities in a seemingly careless way - I exclude my reasoning. I do this because I lack the time to explain or because I'm too impatient to sit down, reflect, and write. I reluctantly admit I am not an educator. My weakness is in assuming everyone else already knows what I know. (I know this is not true!) But in an effort to not "speak down" to people, I err on the side of information ommission. Which, I've come to realize, is not actually helpful! I can improve by meeting people where they are. . . My goal is to inspire people by modeling a different way of life. I am not an expert, which is another reason I sometimes omit a detailed explanation. I am still learning and always will be. I'd rather listen to you than pretend to know it all. . . As for piglet castration, if you've ever eaten pork, it was likely either a female or castrated male pig. An intact adult male, when butchered, almost always has what is called "boar taint," which is when the meat tastes and/or smells off putting. The change in tissue flavor/smell is caused by boar hormones. This is why we castrate our piglets. Because we want to eat them when they're grown. We don't want to risk harvesting them only to realize their meat tastes like urine. It's a preventative measure to minimize waste and respect the pigs life and death.

'MR BAINES OF CANWELL' Extremely proud to be sharing this significant and pretty magnificent chap with you all. My Grandfather bred prize-winning Gloucester Old Spots in Canwell, Staffordshire.

Newport to City Bridge Walk 20181117_5.82 Newport is proving to be a great place to visit and this time I had decided to walk along the River Usk which cuts through the urban area of the town. Glad I did because after only a short distance along the river walkway I spotted a peregrine, perched high up on one of the footbridge's supports. Haven't been able to establish if its a resident or I was just very lucky. #peregrinefalcon #blackheadedgull #redshank #fungi #derelictwharf #siloette #newportbridge #newportcityfootbridge #newportcitybridge #bronzesculpture #gloucesteroldspot #market #riverwalks #riveruskwalk #industrialheritage

It's not a great picture, but it sure was a great Sunday dinner 😋😋 Gloucester Old Spot pork chop, nice and thick with the kidney attached. Creamed celeriac mash with spring onion and cheddar, roast romanesco cauliflower, sauted brussel tops and a sauce made with fennel, white wine and the meat juices. So good! . . . . #sundaydinner #sundaylunch #sunday #weekendfood #onmytable #susiesketokitchen #lowcarb #organic #keto #realmeat #Gloucesteroldspot #pig #eatmoreveg #healthyeating #wellbeing #nourish #feedyourselfwell #nutrition #homecooking #foodieee #ketofoodie #ketofam #weightloss #ketoweightloss #flavour #celeriacmash #recipeinspo #ketoinspo #ketouk #ketolondon
