Acaster Herd of Pedigree Pigs


Logo: The Poplarburn Herd of Pedigree Pigs

The Acaster herd was formed in 1946 when a change of farms brought about a new herd. Previously known as the Fulford herd established in the early 1920s.theAcaster herd continues a family tradition of showing, breeding and retailing of pedigree pigs. Originally founded on the middle white and then the Welsh, today’s herd consists of traditional and modern breeds to suit the demands of the future.

The family ,Richard ,Trisha ,Charlotte , Georgina, Matthew, Camilla, and Alyssia all believe in the necessity of keeping the traditional breeds going forward by the way of breeding, showing and informing the general public how good they taste.

We produce pigs for breeding and for eating and supply retailers who sell into many specialist areas of the food industry. Local pubs and hotels also sell our home produced pork on their menus.

The Acaster herd currently consists of:

Traditional breeds

Middle White Large Black Saddleback Berkshire Tamworth

Modern breeds

Welsh Hampshire Duroc


Acaster pigs can be seen at many county shows up and down the country and show successes in the pig ring has brought about many radio and tv appearances. Exhibitions and demonstrations constantly fill our calendar for such events as countryside live and career days.



Now you can taste how good these traditional breeds are by buying delicious products from our Porky Pig range of meats.

We take orders for our popular freezer packs from a selection of pork and bacon joints, chops, various flavours of sausages, bacon, burgers, mince, and gammon.
