The Tamworth pig originated in Ireland where they were called ‘Irish Grazers’. Sir Robert Peel was impressed by these pigs, so around 1812 brought them back to his English estate, which the pigs now take their name from, the village of Tamworth in Staffordshire. This breed were normally kept in forest of oak and beech where they would be allowed to forage in autumn and winter. The characteristics of this breed of pig reflect the outdoor life they were bred for – with long snouts for be efficient forages, strong legs for travelling large distances and their redish coats make them adaptable to different climates.
