Farm Case Study 4: Sussex Saddlebacks, West Sussex

The Harrises, part of Sussex Saddlebacks take it turn, with 13 other families, to look after their group of pigs. Most of the meat gets shared amongst group members, but surplus meat and weaners for fattening are occasionally sold on.

They’ve implemented social distancing measures where possible, added time slots & ensured great hygiene, but otherwise the cooperative has not been affected by the coronavirus crisis.
