Bowland Outdoor Reared Pork is a small family business which prides itself on providing excellent produce. Livestock roams free on the rich, unspoilt pastures of the Forest of Bowland, ensuring pork, beef and lamb of the highest quality.
The pigs are a large white cross Landrace breed from a 40 strong herd of Landrace sows and a large white boar. Once weaned at 8 weeks of age, the piglets are reared in outdoor straw bedded kennels, fed on a natural cereal based diet and organic cheese whey.
Beef is mainly from Aberdeen Angus cross cattle which share their grazing with a small flock of hill sheep producing Texel lambs. All of these are reared slowly and traditionally, eating mainly lush grass with a cereal and hay diet through the winter.
All the animals are taken to a small local abattoir, and all meat is cut and packed professionally on the farm. This means that all products can be traced back to their origins and reach you in prefect condition.
The quality of the meat is reflected in the number of awards the company has won. These include Northwest Fine Food’s Producer of the Year, Best Pork and Best Overall Sausage Awards in 2004, and Best Pork category for the stuffed pork fillet in 2003.
Bowland Outdoor Reared Pork’s produce is available at farmers' markets and food events across the north west. The company specialises in hog roasts and barbeques for special events and functions. And you can now enjoy their produce through a new mail order service.
