For breeding or for your kitchen. Our first batch of weaners will be ready mid-June, at 8-9 weeks of age. They’ll be wormed and tagged before they leave the farm. Minimum purchase will be a pair, for animal welfare reasons, as pigs need companionship. Exceptions may be made if the animal will be joining an existing herd. Cost will be at £45/ea. You must have a CPH# and proper containment to purchase our animals. If you have not raised weaners before, we will be happy to support you as you go.
Ready for the abattoir
Reserve your weaner in June, and we’ll raise it to six months of age, and take it to the Dingwall abattoir for you. From there, it will go to a local butcher where you’ll be able to pick it up ready for your kitchen. Prices (tba) will be per kilo, plus abattoir and butchery costs. Shipping may be available.
