Our pork is supplied by cooperative members based in the Vale of York and all send their animals to abattoirs within ten miles of their farms to spare them the stress of longer journeys. Animal welfare has always been a priority at R&J.

All our pork is sourced from gilt (female) pigs for reasons of taste.

We pride ourselves on supplying our customers with what we regard as ‘old-fashioned’ pork, complete with a pleasuring texture and a rich covering of fat for plenty of flavour. So much modern, mass-produced pork lacks the crispness of the traditional variety and is far too wet.

We also supply our most discerning customers with pork sourced from two of the rarer pig breeds: Middle White and Gloucester Old Spot. Such distinctive delicacies will be appreciated by the pork connoisseur.
