Farm Case Study 2: Hampton Gay Farm, Oxfordshire

Hampton Gay breeds the endangered large black breed of which there are only a few hundred left. They have two breeding sows, Julie and Julia, and seven piglets at the moment.

Life at the farm has carried on as normal, however farmer Charlotte Caldwell does point out that ‘one of the big differences we have seen is with the abattoir and butcher that we use who are struggling with staff shortages and trying to keep going as normal while keeping their workers a safe distance apart.’
