Farm Case Study 21: Swanbridge Porkers, South Glamorgan

Swanbridge Porkers keep rarebreed Berkshire pigs that roam on 15 acres of pasture & woodland. 👩‍🌾 Farmer Helen Joy says that when covid struck she was worried about the pig feed supply chain, but her local merchant kept it going and gradually the local microbreweries reopened, where she gets fresh grain. She’s pleased that covid has been a catalyst for change and now many more people are chosing to buy local

“Quite a few people came to me and said we were thinking about changing the way we buy our meat for some time, but this has triggered our change and we would like to buy meat in a different way, we would like to buy pork boxes, we would like to buy your sausages.”
