Tamworth pigs are the poster animals of heritage pigs. The beautiful red Tamworth pig is known traditionally as a bacon pig because of the excellent flavour of its smoked meat. Its history as a British forest pig that grazes has given fresh Tamworth meat a distinctive flavourful taste. A Bristol University taste test, under scientifically controlled conditions, rated Tamworth meat as the best when compared with other rare breeds and commercial pork. As with all pork, light fruit based sauces make a good accompaniment but it is the flavour of the meat alone that makes this heritage breed worth growing slowly. They take 50% longer than commercial pigs to grow to market weight.
