Countryside Heroes: The Pig Group Feeding the NHS and the Gorillas
Updated: Apr 9
Our good friends at The Pig Hotel at Bridge Place, Canterbury have started delivering its abundance of produce to the doorstep of NHS workers, the high risk and the vulnerable.
This happens to include the wild residents of the nearby Gorilla sanctuary at Howletts Wild Animal Park which is currently shut to visitors. The 29 Western Lowland Gorillas which The Aspinall Foundation intends to re-introduce to the wilds of Central Africa are now enjoying ‘gone over’ parsnips, chard, celeriac and spring onions, that would otherwise go to waste.
Why don’t you treat yourself to the wonderful Pig Tales and Recipes from the Kitchen Garden and beyond. This is one way to enjoy The Pig from the comfort of your own home. Among the pages you will find an idiosyncratic seasonal approach to the good life with delicious recipes, how to guides, tips, tricks and stories. The perfect present for yourself or a lovely thoughtful gift.
