The Good Abattoir Guide Reviews by Smallholders of their abattoirs
Oaklands Farm is a working farm on the Kent/East Sussex Border.
We started keeping pigs over 16 years ago, mostly for the freezer and started breeding from our own cross-bred stock. We now have over 35 adult sows.
In early 2005 we replaced our many assorted pigs with new pedigree saddleback breeding stock, the foundation of our saddleback herd today. We now have 7 different bloodlines of Saddleback sows and 2 boar lines.
We also have a purebred Oxford Sandy & Black boar, and a number of Oxford sows.
Apart from these, we have examples of many of the other traditional pigs, including Old Spots, Middle White, Large Blacks, Tamworths, Berkshire, Landrace, Mangalitza, Welsh and Kune Kune.
So between us we have many years of experience of buying, keeping and breeding pigs, and offer friendly advice to those new to pig keeping, or those thinking of moving on to breeding pigs.
Here at the farm we have set up a number of different environments in paddocks, woods, and barns with an assortment of styles of fencing and numerous varieties of arks, so that the newcomer can see all the possibilities and decide which would be best for their own set-up.
Being a small farm, we can take the time to discuss and help you choose your pigs, and give help and advice on setting up and all aspects of pig keeping.
For disease control purposes, we do not hire any boars from this farm.
