We source our pork from young female pigs – Gilts – as these produce a much more flavoursome and succulent meat than their male counterparts. We pride ourselves on supplying our customers with what we regard as ‘old-fashioned’ pork. It has a pleasing texture and a rich covering of fat for plenty of flavour.
Cooperative members based in the Vale of York supply our pork. They all send their animals to abattoirs within 20 miles of their farms, reducing the stress of longer journeys. Animal welfare has always been a priority at R&J, and it always will be!
