The majority of British Lop Pigs are based in Cornwall but Amanda Daffurn and her family were keen to help preserve this delightful native rare breed and bring it to Cheshire. The pork and bacon from a well-finished Lop is a high quality product that is very delicious and highly sought after.
All Cheshire Lop Pigs are pedigree registered, all the piglets are birth notified and the ones suitable for breeding are available for sale. They are traceable through the British Lop Pig Society herd books which record back to the 1920's. Currently in Cheshire, there are 3 Lop breeding sows, 1 boar and one Berkshire breed. Once the breed has settled in and increased, British Lop Pig bacon, sausages, hams, burgers and pork will be on sale to the general public via various markets and events.
Cheshire Lop Pigs produce the highest quality meat by never cutting corners on feed and by using the highest level of management and care. Currently, their pigs are bred, slaughtered, butchered and on the table within a 10 mile radius of their farm. They currently supply high quality local restaurants and pubs such as Pecks Restaurant near Congleton, The Hollybush Inn, Winterley and The Manor House Hotel in Alsager. Until the onsite kitchen has been completed, all the processing is done at Alsager Hall Farm Shop and Amanda delivers it to her customers when it's ready
