We really love this breed of pig, they are such wonderful mothers and excellent foragers. They don’t need much as they hardy and quite resistant to illness. A Mother will often build a nest in the forest to Farrow her young in, then come back a week or so later with a litter in tow. No heat lamp, no big shed, just a pig being a pig.
There are a few different versions going around regarding the origin of the Tamworth. One is that it is simply unknown as they are direct descendants to the European wild swine.
