Welcome to Porc.Wales
Welcome to the Porc.Wales blog and to the new Porc.Wales website. Wales is famed for producing quality Welsh Lamb and Welsh Beef, but we shouldn’t forget pork. The profile of the pork industry is growing here in Wales and it has a fantastic tale to tell – a story of which we believe we should all be very proud.
Our new website, Porc.Wales hopes to encourage all of us to eat more quality, locally produced pork. Take a look around our website and explore our delicious recipes for cooking inspiration from the simple to the spectacular. Find out about the pork industry in Wales by clicking here.

Did you know?
- Welsh farmers are blessed with experience handed down over many generations.
- Our pork is steeped in the tradition, knowledge and expertise needed to ensure a great tasting, quality product.
- Pigs reared in Wales are generally kept in smaller herds, creating a happier environment for the animals.
- We raise a variety of lesser known and rare breeds here in Wales; from the Mangalista to the Oxford Sandy & Black, along with our very own native Welsh pedigree.
- Pigs are often reared for longer, allowing them to mature until they're just right.
- The climate and landscape in Wales provides a natural environment to produce quality pork.
- Welsh farmers often adapt their farming methods according to the time of year, giving their pigs the exact care that they need in every season.
- Even before cooking, the difference in quality is clear. Pork from Wales often has a darker colour to its skin and a pinker, rose-coloured flesh.
- Our more traditional, Welsh farms often have shorter supply chains. This helps support local businesses, and is better for the environment.
- Despite being steeped in tradition, we’re not afraid of innovation. Here in Wales you can try anything from charcuterie to artisan salami - all made with pork from Wales.
