"The bacon is the best I've ever tasted. Thick and meaty and not too salty. It is fabulous!"
The Tamworth pigs are one of the world’s oldest pig breeds and is a direct descendant of the European wild boar. This breed originated in Ireland and were exported to the Midlands of England where they take their take the name from the town Tamworth in Staffordshire.
The Tamworth pigs are a red colored breed ranging for red-orange to deep red. They are deep-sided hogs and not as wide-backed as hogs of a thicker breed. The ham is muscular and firm. The Tamworth pigs have a good bone structure, strong feet and great hardiness.
The Tamworth is a very hardy animal and are good mothers. They are particularly suited for grazing, salvaging crops or following behind grazing cattle. They are disease resistant and tolerant of extreme temperatures. Primarily a bacon-pig, the Tamworth pigs declined in popularity because of competition from modern breeders, as it is not suitable for the intensive confined rearing methods. The Tamworth pigs are highly adaptable and suited to both quality pork and bacon production, particularly in grazing operations.
"I just wanted to let you know that your pork ribs, served on Christmas Eve, were a big hit. The picture is of their "out-of-the-oven" look which didn't last long as people dug in. The ribs were slow oven roasted, a reduction of pan juices, and BBQ sauce mixed in."
