Parkhill Rare Breeds

We are a 25 acre smallholding in Angus, Scotland.

We keep pigs, poultry, sheep and two pet goats. We currently produce pork and pork products, as well as free range eggs from our hens and ducks.

We are proud supporters of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST), the leading charity working to secure the future for all of our native farm livestock. Our pigs can be seen every year at the Scottish Smallholder Festival – a celebration of the smaller producer that takes place each September at Lanark Mart. See the contacts page for details.
