Pigs in Space
There should be nothing unusual in seeing pigs digging for roots in the open fields, unhappily this is a rare occurrence with the majority of pigs today farmed intensively. McCarthys sell nitrate-free pork products produced from free-range pigs locally, despite their rarity.
The pigs are able to enjoy a large area in which they can dig, run and play. These pigs live a happy life and the bacon which Jack and Tim produce from these free range animals tastes all the better. The animals are healthier with free access to the open air, exercise and their natural diet. They are also enjoy a longer life than those animals which are farmed intensively.
The McCarthys employ traditional curing techniques, innovative spice combinations, delicious smokes or Irish whiskey to impart fantastic flavours and tenderness to the wide range of products that are produced from these wonderful pigs.
