Blue Pig

for Blue Pig

The Blue Pig Company was established by brothers Andrew and Anthony Bradley. The brothers are the seventh generation of the Bradley family to farm Mearbeck, located just outside the market town of Settle in North Yorkshire. They have been farming since they left University (it would be insensitive of us to mention how long that is) and in that time they have seem many changes reflecting the changes faced by the farming industry.

Following the foot and mouth crisis the Bradleys started pig farming in 2005 with the intention of applying all Bradley family farming knowledge in the pursuit of rearing rare breed pigs (Blue Pigs) to produce the best possible pork products. They pride themselves on producing great tasting pork products from happy outdoor reared pigs. They breed and rear all their own pigs and produce a wide range of pork products including their award winning sausages, burgers and black pudding, all on site.

Having already started to sell their products via local farmers markets, The Blue Pig Company asked kilo75 to produce their first ecommerce site in order to offer their products nationwide. The resulting site uses both Magento, to provide a great ecommerce experience, and Wordpress, to keep customers abreast of farm activities via a blog. In addition to selling products The Blue Pig Company website includes recipes, information on new products (including the production process) and details of upcoming Farmer’s Markets. The design is intended to reflect something of the picturesque Yorkshire Dales and wide open spaces enjoyed by the animals.

Although it was Andrew and Anthony’s approach to the welfare of their animals that first impressed us, we can also testify that they really do produce the best tasting pork joints and sausages we've ever had.
