This breed was on the verge of extinction 25 years ago but is increasing in popularity and it is not hard to see why. The Oxford 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 with a white blaze on the face and a white tassel on the tail.
The pork produced is a superb flavour and there is a good meat to carcass ratio. Oxford Sandy and Blacks do not put on as much fat as other breeds and although fat is needed to provide the best meat it means that they are not over fatty.
There are only 4 male and 13 female lines and at Plum Pudding Pigs we have two boar lines and five of the female lines , with one of the rarer female lines Gertrude
