What I really like about Tamworth pigs is their intelligence and lively nature, good mothering and terrific pork. Historically a bacon breed, they’re lengthy bodied and have a superb distribution of lean with fats. And, after all, with their lovely pink hair, they give the impression of being superb grazing on a inexperienced pasture or distinction in opposition to snow. They can stand up to 4 seasons of climate with a hardy structure.
