At Festival HQ, we know that pigs are an important part of many smallholdings, whether breeding, rearing and processing as a business, for land management or raising a couple of weaners for the freezer. Smallholders also play a critical role in protecting and promoting British breeds of pigs – all eleven of which are included on the Rare Breed Survival Trust’s Watchlist.
Pig demonstrations and seminars to be confirmed.
We’re also delighted to host a British Kunekune Pig Society breed show.
We owe a big thanks to all the breeders and keepers who make the effort to bring pigs to the event, so please do make the effort to visit the Pig Showcase and have a chat to the keepers (and the pigs).
