Our Taste the Difference Pigs are reared exclusively for us on Wold Farms across Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Our Hampshire-cross pigs are bred for their superb tenderness, succulence and flavour. The meat is carefully matured to develop depth and distinction, then the rind is scored for perfect crackling ....that’s why you can taste the difference
