Animal welfare is important to us, and we are keen to ensure that our pork supply comes from happy pigs. So when checking with Charles Ashbridge of Mount Grace Farm, Cold Kirby, near Thirsk about his pigs, we jokingly asked if they spent their days out in the fields with party hats and whistles.
Charles assured us that due to government health & safety legislation they were sadly unable to have these jolly items, but if they could they certainly would! That clinched it for us. Charles also supplies us with superb outdoor reared and rare breed pork from other trusted farmers in the area.
