Longpush Pork free range pigs

From Nine To Noon, 11:30 am on 24 August 2015

Naya Brangenberg and Jeremy Wilhelm moved to the Wairarapa on a small farm to enjoy the quiet life on a few hectares of land and got a couple of pigs for food. But one theing led to another and now they have a free range pork business. Longbush Pork raises premium pigs, which are managed ethically and sustainably, to restaurants, butchers and small goods producers in Wellington and the Wairarapa. It has just won the Wellington on a Plate Sustainability Award for the way it uses waste grain like wheat, bread and corn from other commercial operations - and the fact it encourages the use of the entire pig.
