Farm Case Study 1: The Heritage Hog, East Sussex

The Heritage Hog avoids commercial fast growing pigs in favour of slow growing breeds; allowing them to live as natural a life as possible by keeping them outside for their whole lives to be truly free range.

With the farm geared towards supplying festivals and events halted due to the lock down, they are behind in their growth plans, . However, Chief farmer Ben De Havilland said that they have learnt many lessons from the outbreak and are now setting up an online service and an online shop tab to safeguard the business if anything like this should happen again. They are also exploring a takeaway service in the form of sausages to customers. When considering the vulnerability of the supply chain, Ben insists, “Supporting local businesses is the way to spend your money going forward.”
