Buttle Farm in Compton Bassett is home to Robert and Sara, managing a herd of rare breed native British pigs. Born and raised on the farm in a free-range extensive system, Buttle Farm pigs live their whole lives in small groups, in a high welfare and natural environment, outdoors all year round. From these animals, Robert makes a range of award-winning charcuterie including bacon, salami and air dried ham in a converted barn on the farm, as well as selling fresh pork to leading restaurants and direct to the consumer.
The guinea fowl roam free range around the barns and into the fields, eating bugs and seeds along the way, as well as delivering fabulously yellow, rich eggs for use in the kitchen. They may not be the smartest birds but they certainly are one of the more entertaining varieties.
Quality is the watchword at Buttle Farm – quality of life for the livestock, quality of meat and curing for the charcuterie, quality of accommodation in the holiday cottage. A small haven of luxury in a beautiful setting.
