Passionate about pigs – proud producer of pork
The Plum Pudding Pig Company breeds rare breed pedigree Oxford Sandy and Black pigs on the top of the Mendips in an area of outstanding natural beauty.
The Oxford Sandy and Black often known as the ‘Plum Pudding Pig’ with their black blotches all over, reminiscent of the fruit in a plum pudding, were also the pig that many people used to own and keep in their garden.
The Oxford Sandy and Black is one of the oldest British pig breeds and is on the endangered list with less than 200 breeding sows (2006 survey). This breed was on the verge of extinction 20 years ago but is increasing in popularity and it is not hard to see why. The Oxford Sandy and Black is a medium to large pig with lop ears. The colours vary from a light sandy colour to a deep ginger with random black patches. The feet are white, they have a white blaze on the face and a white tassel on the tail.
