Red Tamworth Pork

Every year at Sugar Hill Farm we raise the Red Tamworth pig. Red Tamworth pork is a heritage breed known for great tasting, lean meat with good texture. The piglets are purchase in the spring and raised until the fall.

The Red Tamworth pigs gain weight slower than commercial breeds and can’t stand up to the conditions in a confinement facility. Therefore they have fallen out of favour with large factory hog farms. The American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC) has stated that there are fewer than 1,000 annual North American registrations of the Red Tamworth and have estimated fewer than 5,000 globally. The ALBC list the Red Tamworth pig as a “threatened” farm animal.
