WEANERS (fatteners, porkers, baconers, rearing stock)

We always have a variety of weaners available and plenty of guidance and advice if this is your first time fattening your own stock.  Always feel free to drop us an email with your questions.

Our stock is constantly changing so if you do not see what you are looking for, let us know, we may well have the breed or be able to source it.  At busy times of the year our stock sells before even making it onto the website!  To secure the weaners you want, you can pay a deposit with the balance due when you collect or we deliver.

Weaners are generally sold at 8 weeks of age and are already eating solids, in our case pig nuts. We are able to offer three types of weaners depending on your requirements. These are:

- Weaners for Fattening
- Weaners for Breeding
- Registered Weaners for Breeding

The first two can be pure bred & birth notified or may be crosses. The third is pure bred & birth notified and on payment of a registration fee can be registered. If you require registered stock please ensure you let us know before you place your order as all stock is booked on a first come basis and it is often not possible to change at a later date from unregistered to registered stock since there is limited availability.

For weaner availability drop us an email. Please book early to avoid disappointment!

Email mail@keythorpe.co.uk with your enquiry.

We look forward to hearing from you!
