Borrowdale Free Range Pork
Rediscover the real taste of Pork
Borrowdale free range pork delivers a modern take on traditionally farmed pork of yesteryear, bringing the highest standards of ethical pork production.
Raised in a stress free environment, with the freedom to truffle, play and wallow in the mud, their free range pork has taken on the superior flavour and tenderness of pork from a bygone era.
With Borrowdale free range pork, you can rediscover the real taste of pork.
Certified Free Range
Plating the perfect pork starts with ensuring our pigs get to roam freely, which is why Borrowdale are proudly APIQ Certified Free Range. This means that you can enjoy Borrowdale Pork the way it was always intended, 100% naturally.
APIQ✓® free range industry standards, ensuring all our pigs have access to outdoor areas their entire lives. The environment is enriched with wallows and space to forage.
APIQ✓® free range standards also ensure water and food is always accessible and that environmental welfare is also maintained.
Being 100% Carbon Neutral means Borrowdale takes responsibility for their footprint and carbon emissions – from animals roaming in grassy paddocks to delivering products over the ‘final mile’ to stores and every product they produce.
Borrowdale only uses the International Gold Standard Certification of verifiable carbon credits as prescribed under the Kyoto Protocol.
Borrowdale pigs are free to express their natural behaviours in an environment that meets their physical and behavioural needs.
Borrowdale pigs are bred and raised without confinement, free of sow stalls and farrowing crates. Our pigs can socialise and interact with other pigs.
In short, Borrowdale pigs are raised in such a naturally high animal welfare environment and can do the things pigs like to do.
This makes for perfectly natural pork.
Restorative Farming Practices
At Borrowdale we don’t just care for our animals, we care for the land as well.
We rotate paddocks every three years to ensure the land is rested and to avoid the build-up of nutrients which may compromise the water table. Our neighbours crop and farm the land for six years before we return our pigs to that site.
