British Lop

The British Lop is a large, lop eared white pig. Now very rare indeed, perhaps because it looks like the modern “pink” pigs and is therefore less appealing to those seeking to keep traditional breeds.

It is a docile breed, hardy and not a deep rooter, so suitable for grazing and orchards.

Meat is high quality, with good marbling, long, well-streaked bacon sides and good hams, with meat right down to the hocks.
