Home Grown Pigs, near Melksham Station

A forum post on The Melksham Forum about "what is there to do with visitors to melksham on a Sunday morning?" lead me to Home Grown Pigs, who are just about a hundred yards up the Bath Road. Not somewhere I had really come across ... but I took the opportunity of Saturday, when they were open for a sale, to drop in and see them.

Ducks at Home Grown Pigs, Melksham

Home grown pigs - one of the pigs

Jacobs sheep, Home Grown Pigs, Melksham

It's not just pigs ... as you can see. And it's not just keeping rare breeds -they're for food, and we came back with a duck (just eaten, lovely), a link of sausages, and half a dozen duck eggs.
