Jimmy Butler, with the support of his wife Pauline, took the concept of free range pig farming and made it into a business.
A Blythburgh pig is born in a straw filled farrowing hut located on the sandy earth of the Suffolk heritage coast. Its’ mother has a free range life style with the choice of being outside if it is sunbathing weather or staying inside if it’s raining. Free range is as simple as that really, it’s giving the pig the freedom to choose whether to go outside.
Blythburgh pigs remain on the farm until they are 25 to 26 weeks old. This extra time allows a flavour and succulence to develop within the meat that is not found in today’s intensively reared pork. The natural balanced approach to growth of Blythburgh Free Range Pork gives an enriched cooking and eating experience.
