New Year Arrivals

nine piglets born January 2014Our Gloucester Old Spot pig “Margie” gave birth on January 4th to nine healthy piglets. This is Margie’s second set of piglets since her arrival last year. They have a fine pedigree” says our stock man John Langan. ” The father of these lovely piglets lives in Northern Ireland. He has a wonderful name: ‘Forthill Rufus 456’.  Marjorie has never met him as she was fertilized by artificial insemination -which arrived by post. “This a lot easier than fighting to get her into a truck and leaving her with a boar for three weeks!” says John.

Come by and take a look at the piglets for yourself.
