Our Pedigree Middle White Pigs


Little Oak Farm is home to the Rosedotphilbry herd of Pedigree Middle White Pigs. We named our herd after our parents, yes it is a very strange way to always rememeber them. We have our own breeding stock of Pedigree Middle Whites on the farm, 3 Boars & 12 Sows. We keep various bloodlines, as we are very keen and active in preserving the breed of pig.

The Middle White pig is registered with the RBST as an endangered species, as there are less than 200 breeding sows in the country, a far cry from being on of the countries most popular pig before WW2. The Middle White is well known in the industry as the only specialist pork joint pig in the country and is regarded by many of the countries top chefs as an excellent pig. Producing an excellent tasting meat with a good fat to meat ratio.


The breed itself was established in 1842 in Keighley, North Yorkshire. A well known local Middle White pig breeder by the name of Joseph Tully was showing some of his famous Large White Pigs at the Keighley Agricultural Show. When it came to the judging some of the pigs were considered to small to be judged as Large Whites. As the "merits of the pigs were so extraordinary" a commitee was summoned who decided the pigs were also too big to be classed as Small Whites. So it was decied a 3rd Class would be formed and so the Middle White was born. The Small White is no longer with us. It became extinct in 1912.
