You many have been watching Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket over the last few weeks, where the manufacturing process behind supermarket meat products is investigated.
The story behind our produce is very different to that depicted at Tescos where pigs and chickens are raised in doors and the meat bulk processed by machines on a conveyor belt.
At Swillington Farm we believe in honest and trustworthy high welfare farming, we also butcher and prepare all our meat ourselves to ensure quality and traceabilty.
We invite you to get hands on and see this completely different approach to the supermarkets. We are proud of our animal welfare standards and you are welcome to come along and see our pigs, cows, sheep and chickens in their natural habitat - you can do just that at our Open Farm Sunday, 17th June!

On Sunday June 17th farms across the country will be opening up for visitors so that people can see and experience life on Britain's farms.
Visiting a farm provides a fantastic opportunity for everyone, young and old to enjoy the living, vibrant countryside. Take time to listen to the birds, soak up the scenery, experience the smells of the farmyard and really get in touch with the land that feeds us.
