Great Guernsey Pork – Porky’s


Porky's from Spike Productions on Vimeo.

As part of a series of films for Visit Guernsey showcasing the quality of Guernsey food we spent a morning knee deep in mud captivated by pigs and piglets with Guernsey’s organic pig farmer and butcher Jason Hamon. Sound design on the film was produced by musician James Sinclair Stott.

Jason, the butcher at local food retailer Forest Stores and the shop floor manager Matt Bateman hand-rear almost 100 pigs for their new range of local produce, Porky’s.

They are quite literally bringing home the bacon in their quest for the perfect pork chop.

‘This started out as a hobby, but it got a bit out of control,’ said Jason.

The smallholding has grown considerably since the 33-year-old first started keeping pigs in 2006. What started with five piglets has grown to a drove of almost 100
