Farm Case Study 29: Red Deer Farm, Exmoor

๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐ŸŒพ Louise runs Red Deer Rare Breeds in Exmoor home to Middle White pigs of which there are around 1-200 left in the UK, rarer than the giant panda. The farm also have British Lops and Gloucester Old Spot pigs. The animals are slowly grown outdoors on an organic diet.

Louise says, “Because of the coronavirus, people have been more willing to buy online and expressed more interest in the provenance of their food. People are happy with the few extra pennies that theyโ€™re not spending in the pubs and restaurants to spend it on their food”.

๐Ÿ–๐ŸŒณ If we don’t continue to support our local farmers & high welfare independent retailers now and into the future, we will lose them! #RootingForRealFarms
