Their Rare Breed Pedigree Oxford Sandy & Black Pigs, also known as the ‘plum pudding pig’ – is one of the oldest British native breeds and is recognised by the RBST (Rare Breed Survival Trust). The breed has almost become extinct twice, but with strict breeding standards, conservation, and people eating pedigree pork- the breed is being supported and sustained. The breed is a slower to mature than traditional breeds which makes it tender and tasty!
There are two types of alpaca; the Huacaya that originate from the Andes Mountains and the Suri, from the plains of North America.
Here at South Paddocks they only keep Huacaya alpacas and have a mixture of breeding and non breeding animals in their herd. They also offer walking, and meet and greet experiences with their friendly alpacas at the farm.
The alpacas are sheared once a year and their beautiful fibre is used to make products which are sold from the farm, and sell the fibre direct to spinners to process into yarn. Unlike sheep’s wool, alpaca fibre is hypoallergenic, lanolin free, stronger, softer, warmer and retains less water.
The fibre is super versatile and can be used as: natural nesting material for birds, bedding for pets such as hamsters gerbils rabbits etc, and as a natural slug repellent when placed around plants.
Nothing is wasted at the farm, so the 100% raw alpaca manure is great for the garden! Offering a more balanced nutritional content than any other livestock manure, it does not need to be aged or composted before use, and can be spread directly onto soil.
