Small-Scale Producers

Home \ Pig Production \ Small-Scale Producers

The industry is made up of a huge variety of production systems with herds ranging from just a handful of sows to thousands. Each of these businesses has an important part to play in the overall success of the industry, whether it’s commercial lines or rare breeds it is important to know that the support and information is out there.

Pig Clubs

During February 2018 we held two meetings in the south of England. Unfortunately the Sussex event was postponed due to the extreme weather, however, this meeting will now take place towards the end of April. 

We are excited to announce that we will also be launching a brand new pig club in April. This new event will be held in Worcestershire and we are looking forward to meeting pig keepers from around the region.

The events are free of charge and everyone is welcome, a meal will also be provided.
