Stonebridge Cottage Farm raise free-range pigs and sell pork in their farm shop, as well as to local restaurants, pubs, and shops. The pigs are are fed on brewers grain from the local breweries, whey from the local cheese makers and raw veg from local farmers as well as some mineral grain. During lockdown the grain and whey ceased, so costs went through the roof. But, the farm shop got busier.
Farmer Robbie says, “It’s been a good opportunity to educate people [that] there is an alternative out there to the commercial farms”.
