Farm Case Study 32: The Good Life Meat Projects, Shepton Mallet

?‍? Craig runs the The Good Life Projects in Shepton Mallet. His core belief is that, in order for us to live ‘The Good Life’, we have to work with nature and ensure its preservation. The farm currently has 11 pasture raised pigs which consist of Large Blacks, Sandy Blacks, and Gloucester Old Spots.

?️ Craig says, “Our sausages and pork products are produced in Somerset, slaughtered in Somerset, packed in Somerset, and sold in Somerset. We only sell to people in a 10 mile radius, so our pork goes a maximum of 30 miles before it gets to people’s plate. Eat British Heritage Breed pigs or lose them. Buy pork directly from local farmers and ask the butchers where the pork comes from.”

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