Welcome to Proper Pork Online!

The very best, flavoursome pork for you and your family.

Exclusively and carefully raised by Helen Wakeham in the heart of the South Hams countryside. You just won't find this sort of freshness and great flavour in mass-produced meat.

What makes Proper Pork such a taste-sensation?

Helen has been farming animals for many years in South Devon, after training in animal husbandry at Seale Hayne Agricultural College.  She is completely committed to the health and well-being of her animals, allowing them to grow naturally and happily in the Devon countryside.

It's all in the breeding..

The proper, old-fashioned, true flavour of traditional pork has been sacrificed over the years as supermarkets have encouraged farmers to raise faster growing and much less tasty breeds of pig.

These modern, intensively raised breeds produce noticeably paler meat with hugely inferior flavour which lacks the succulence of our traditional, native breeds of British pig.

Helen farms only traditional breeds all the piglets on her farm near Buckfastleigh are produced by crossing her Saddleback sows with her very own Welsh White boar. A policy of late-weaning and careful feeding  allows for a slower and natural growth rate which in turn produces her much sought-after meat product ­Proper Pork.

Especially to order

Professionally prepared by our local butcher, Proper Pork meat is supplied ready-packed to suit customers' individual requirements.
