My Saddlebacks are delightful to care for, they graze and enjoy a free range life however do love a nice warm barn with classical music in the winter.

The saddleback produce an exceptional meat, superior bacon and pork. The skin makes lively cracklings and an all round premium traditional tasty meat.

They are masters of escape and for ever enjoying the apple tree in the garden.
