Welsh Pig The weekend ... and what an excellent opportunity to explore a lane I've often seen off the A361 just down from The Bell near Seend Cleeve.


Gloucestershire Old Spot Pig The track drops off the edge of the hill, across cattle grids and runs unfenced through fields of cows; it's narrow and you pull onto the grass to pass other cars.


Tamworth Pig At the end of the track is "The Fat Hamster" Cafe, Thornham Farm Shop, an old bus parked up (as extra sleeping quarters?) and some paddocks of animals so that the customers know what they're buying from the shop.


Berkshire Pig There's quite a range of different breeds of pig at the farm - the butcher proudly telling me what they sold (and me carelessly forgetting). I think there's a Tamworth Red in my pictures, but I don't recall it being mentioned; I do recall mention of "Old Spot"

See Thornham Farm Shop's own web site ... and it's a great half hour's diversion on a Saturday afternoon. See Oklahoma State University for details of pig types (seriously good site) ... and work out which of the ones picture here are Welsh, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Berkshire and Tamworth.

This is a page archived from The Horse's Mouth at http://www.wellho.net/horse/ - the diary and writings of Graham Ellis. Every attempt was made to provide current information at the time the page was written, but things do move forward in our business - new software releases, price changes, new techniques. Please check back via our main site for current courses, prices, versions, etc - any mention of a price in "The Horse's Mouth" cannot be taken as an offer to supply at that price.
