What a pig gob! Our pigs spend 2-3 days mostly grazing pasture after their move into a new paddock They spend the next 3-4 days mostly rooting before we move them on #LynbreckCroft #croft #pigsofinstagram #oxfordsandyandblack #rarebreeds #nativebreeds #regenerativegrazing #pastureraised #pigsonpasture #freerangepork #freerange

Here’s lookin’ at you, pig. My pick of the porcines for #BBCFarmingFocus is the #Tamworth . These fellas have got some moves. Did you know they can bolt as fast as a horse?! If you think they bear more than a passing resemblance to wild boars you’d be right. They share many of the same vital stats: long legs, long snouts and long bristles. The boys can be a little boisterous at times but nothing like the levels of aggression you’d see in a wild boar. These chaps are extremely hardy, docile, inquisitive & love to explore. They’re super bright and nothing floats their boat more than a good rootle. Great news for soil improvement! They use those long snouts to dig into the ground to find all manner of delicacies. They’ll eat acorns (which are toxic to other grazing animals), roots & rhizomes, earthworms & invertebrates but they’ll also tackle weeds that other animals turn their noses up at. Very useful if you have patches of tap-rooted thugs like docks or thistles taking over. Interestingly, they tend to know what’s not good for them, so they steer clear of bulbs like snowdrops & bluebells. In fact, they can actually increase the population of these flowers because their rootling activity effectively digs up and divides the clumps of bulbs under the soil. Turning over the soil in this way they kickstart the natural lifecycle of a number of plants & insects. The clods could form homes for solitary bees or anthills for the woodpecker to feed on. Or it could be a bare patch of earth for scattered seed to germinate. The pot-luck pig! They’ll live happily with other animals in all manner of different ecosystems - from meadowlands to forests. They thrive on low energy foods & as a result, take their time to grow to their handsome full proportions, with boars weighing in at 300kg. They’re adventurous & great problem solvers. They’ve even been known to dive into lakes to hunt for swan mussels! And what do you know, that ginger pelt is actually fantastic at preventing sunburn. 😎 All in all, an excellent free-range foraging, forest loving pig. #BBCFarmingFocus #BBCBreakfast #thisrurallife #smallholding #fritzonfarming #farming #tamworthpigs #rarebreeds

Our ancient British White Cattle. Did you know that the lines of this bovine can claim direct links to the indigenous white park cattle of Great Britain ? And that they still hold their wild cattle instincts of hiding their calves and herd protection whilst the cows graze and rest? And their natural ability to forage with exceptional grazing conversion, and adaptive to all climates, gentle natures makes them ideal for regenerative farming grazing systems. #britishwhitebeef #100 %GrassFed #naturalbeef #bornandraisedatbrooklands #regenerativefarming #knowyourproducer #heritagebeef #ancientcattle #rarebreeds #preservingourfuture
Just a few of my favourite pictures from the rare breeds show and sale in Gosford Forest Park yesterday.

#bookoftheday2019 'Two hundred years of British Farm Livestock.' S Hall & J Clutton-Brock, 1989. Traditional and often now rare breeds of cattle, sheep, pigs and horses recorded in paintings: this Gloucester cow is Blossom, whose lymph conferred immunity from cowpox and thus smallpox when administered by Edward Jenner in 1796 - the start of vaccination. #bibliophile #rarebreeds #domesticanimals
Such a lovely farm 💕

Meet Thor ... The SUFFOLK PUNCH I had the privilege of checking this beautiful horses saddle last week through @hvsaddlery @somerfordparkofficial whilst he was on camp with his human Louise. The Suffolk Punch breed was originally measured in at just 15.2!! And with only around 300 horses left in the UK of this beautiful breed we need to cherish everyone of them even more!! Do you own a Suffolk Punch? Let’s see your photos of the magnificent breed ❤️ #saddlefitting #saddlefitter #suffolkpunchhorse #suffolkpunch #hopevalleysaddlery #somerfordpark #horsecamp #highpeakridingclub #equestrian #rarebreeds #countryfile #horsesofinstagram #horseriders #cheshireriders #equine #saddles
