Rhug pigs are reared outside in individual huts and as soon as they are big enough, they can roam out onto clover rich pastures and are completely free range. They lead a natural stress free life with the ability to socialise with other pigs which we believe all contributes to the quality of the meat. Rhug doesn't cut their teeth, or tails or put rings in their noses. The pigs root naturally in the soil picking up minerals and are let out on fields after the harvest of organic potatoes, carrots and parsnips. The pigs live outdoors until the day of slaughter and range free on virgin ground where no pigs have been for five years.
