“Since 2010 we have been breeding and raising free range, rare breed pigs on our five acre small holding just outside Woolhope in Herefordshire.
Our sausages, bacon and pork cuts proved so popular, even winning recognition in prestigious competitions during British Sausage Week, that we opened our small farm shop, began delivering to local businesses and even catering at local events.
The proof of the pudding – or, in this case, the sausage – is in the eating.”

We are only a small brewery and we are very proud of that… that passion to enjoy another great beer that keeps us getting up in the morning
We love what we do and, to be honest, the people we do it with and who we do it for.
Our range is evolving as we realise what our customers like and, ok let’s be honest, what they don’t! We now have a great core range which we brew and we are adding craft specials to this selection on an ongoing basis’
