Oaklands Pigs - Sharing our Expertise

Clare & Robin welcome you to the Oaklands Pigs website

Oaklands Farm is a working farm on the Kent/East Sussex Border, near Tunbridge Wells.

We started keeping pigs over 25 years ago, mostly raising weaners for the freezer before starting breeding from our own stock.

We are not currently running any pig keeping courses.

In early 2005 we replaced our many assorted pigs with new pedigree saddleback breeding stock, the foundation of our saddleback herd today. 

Apart from these, we have examples of some of the other traditional pigs, including Tamworths and Kune Kune. We have also kept Middle Whites, Welsh, Oxford Sandys, Berkshires, Large Whites, Old Spots, Landrace, Large Blacks and Mangalitzas in the past. We have recently reduced the number of animals at the farm and now have around a dozen adult breeding stock.

So between us we have many years of experience of buying, keeping and breeding pigs, and offer friendly advice to those new to pig keeping, or those thinking of moving on to breeding pigs.

Here at the farm we have set up a number of different environments in paddocks, woods, and barns with an assortment of styles of fencing and numerous varieties of arks, so there is always something going on at the farm.

Being a small farm, we can take the time to discuss and help you choose your pigs, and give help and advice on setting up and all aspects of pig keeping.

For disease control purposes, we do not hire any boars from this farm, or accept sows for mating.

We are not able to offer any vet student or work experience placements, as there is very little maintenance required for our outdoor herd.

Are you Hungary ?

Meet MATYAS (the blonde) and MIKLOS (the red) Mangalitza pigs from Hungary, that have just arrived at Oaklands Farm. The Mangalitza has a woolly coat like a sheep and the meat has fat marbled through it, rather than a layer of fat on the top.
