Dingley Dell pork farm

Posted on 24 Nov 2010 at 08:52

Moving to work in Suffolk was a big challenge for me in terms of finding new suppliers. Working around the midlands, and in Nottingham in particular I had found many local suppliers I was very happy with, and unfortunatly I couldnt bring many of those suppliers with me......

One of the first companys I found was Dingley Dell an outdoor pig farm, in the beautiful Deben Valley, not far from Ipswich. After checking out there website http://www.dingleydell.com/ I spoke to the owner Mark and he arranged a visit for me and one of my lads. Meeting Mark on our arrival it was clear to how passionate he is about his "happy" pigs. Alot of work is done with with R.S.P.C.A and Freedom foods

What amazed me most was the control over such a large farm. Every single pig is logged and can be traced right back through its parents. No mean feat when you have well over 1000 pigs and around and new ones born everyday. Mark also has alot of control over when the meat goes even though there is no abattoir or butcher on site, he decides what butchers and local supermarkets can use his produce.

Overall a fantastic farm and a great visit, i currently use, their pork neck, pork belly, mince for sausages for breakfast, and the head for terrine.
