Glastonbury started in a field, cost £1 to get in and everyone received a free glass of milk. We don’t have a cow, and we’re borrowing a field at Jimmy’s Farm, but here’s to the inaugural One Pig Weekend (OPW)!
OPW has been created to dedicate one weekend in the year to buying and cooking British Pork. However that sounds a little boring, so we’ve decided to turn it into a party!
On 30th and 31st July, we’re encouraging as many people in the UK to sign up to throwing a party and putting British pork on the menu.
From simple lunches to exquisite dinner parties, BBQs, lounge picnics, romantic candle lit soirees, sausage eating competitions and raucous garden do’s, One Pig Weekend is your chance to eat like a king and do some good for British pig farmers.
Be sure to be creative and have a laugh, because we want you to come back and share your photos and stories on the website, the best will win some top goodies.
And for those who fancy a good old knees up away from home, then Jimmy is hosting his very own One Pig Weekend Sausage and Beer festival at the farm.
So, get ready to put Pork On Your Fork at One Pig Weekend 30 – 31 July 2011!
