WEANERS (scroll down for boars)

Weaners are generally sold at 8 weeks of age and are already eating solids, in our case natural GM free nuts.  We are able to offer three types of weaners depending on your requirements.  These are:

- Weaners for Fattening
- Weaners for Breeding
- Registered Weaners for Breeding

The first two can be pure bred & birth notified or may be crosses.  The third is pure bred & birth notified and on payment of a registration fee can be registered.  If you require registered stock please ensure you let us know before you place your order as all stock is booked on a first come basis and it is often not possible to change at a later date from unregistered to registered stock since there is limited availability.

For weaner availability, scroll down for breeds and expected farrowing dates.  Please book early to avoid dissappointment!

Call Serena or Adam on 01858 55 55 77 or email pigs@keythorpe.co.uk with your enquiry.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Room for all at the trough!

MAKING THE BACON!

Here at Keythorpe we boast about our top quality pork, and it all starts from one day old...

First of all we apply a moderate heat from one day old to set the little sausages simmering...


...and then as summer comes we turn up the heat to bake them off in the sunshine...














...and then finally, we drop them in a hot frying pan...





...and walaaa!!  The best tasting sausages, the ultimate bacon, outstanding pork and excellent gammon!
