Our number 1 priority at Anna’s, is the welfare of our pigs and to ensure this we only work with people who share our values.
Our entire setup is based on our welfare standards which the land available to us and the people we have dictate. For free range pigs you need the right land but equally as important you need the right people. We are very lucky to have some outstanding people who share our beliefs but they are few and far between out there so if you or anyone you know think you have what it takes and share our values get in touch!
Although our pigs are kept outside they all have access to shelter and warm straw bedding. This shelter provides shade from the sun in summer and a nice cosy house in winter. Pigs create a lot of heat so when they all bed down together they’re super snug and warm. All of our accommodation is adaptable so that we can create more ventilation in summer and more heat in winter.
If it gets super hot out there then we can create wallows on the floor for the pigs – they just love it! Pigs cannot sweat so this is the best way for them to cool down by wallowing in glorious mud!
Anna’s Happy Trotters are fed a balanced and nutritious diet of natural and locally produced ingredients. Our pig feed does not contain any antibiotic growth promoters.
