Oxborough pig farmer's walk to promote local meat


A herd of rare lop-eared large black sows and their litters were stars of the show at a walk organised to promote locally-sourced meat.

The breed, a threatened species, originates from the Old English hog but farmer Robert Simonds hopes to help its survival by doubling his herd of 60 sows.

Tourism officers, butchers, wholesalers and farm customers who run pubs, hotels, and farm shops joined the Walk the Pork event at Oxborough in Norfolk.
