When developing his business James wanted to use quality Hogs where he knew about their lifestyle. Whilst driving through the lanes of Wickham he spied pigs foraging in a field – he had to find out about these which were doing what comes naturally, looking relaxed and content. Off he went up and down the lanes asking everyone who was walking in the area if they knew who owned the pigs. At last the answer – Westlands Farm in Blind Lane. After talking to the farmer and discovering they have their own farm butchers shop he decided to try one to see if this really was a dream come true…………………..delicious. James could not have been more delighted and since then he has not wandered anywhere else.
Free Range Pork from Westlands Farm
Westlands pigs are Free Range enjoying the outdoor life. The sows are half Large White (a breed known for its meat quality) a quarter Duroc ( known for its outdoor hardiness) and a quarter Landrace (known for its succulence and taste). The boars are pure large white to enhance the overall meat quality and taste. Our piglets are naturally reared outdoors . They enjoy the fresh air having food and water constantly available whilst they have plenty of space to roam around.
Westlands Farm Shop is situated just outside the villages of Shedfield and Wickham in Hampshire and is easy to get to from Southampton, Fareham, Portsmouth and surrounding areas.
