Most of the pigs at Farrowby Farm were born on the farm. However a few of the pigs, such as the black 'Berkshire' pig in the picture were brought in from other farms to provide some variety and interest. The pigs on the farm are used for pork and bacon. The meat from different breeds can taste different, some breeds such as the black pig pictured are only used for pork. Picture taken January 15th 2007 at Farrowby Farm, Hertfordshire.
