Established in the spring of 2010, Little John’s is no ordinary Hog Roast.
We breed our own rare breed Berkshire pigs which are reared outdoors, they are slower growing than commercial pigs, giving the pork a traditional flavour and spectacular crackling. Berkshires have a lean meat to fat ratio which ensures fantastic crackling, the natural basting of the pork during cooking ensures the meat is succulent with a traditional pork flavour.
As enthusiasts of Pedigree Berkshires we wanted to help preserve one of our native breed of pigs while also supporting the British pork industry.
We can guarantee traceability of all our pork, with meat certificates for each of our hog roasts. Customers are very welcome to come and see our pedigree Berkshires.
Champion Pork from Champion Pigs
In 2014 we began showing our Berkshire pigs both locally at Nottinghamshire County & Lincolnshire shows and nationally. Our success includes; champion male, champion female, champion traditional male, champion Berkshire and supreme champion. Our pigs have also qualified for the Berkshire champion of champions, pig of the year and young pig of the year.
Breeding champion pigs indicates the high welfare standards of our pigs.
