Whilst here at Garnetts we love to have our Sows Farrowing outside during the Summer months our soil type is not suitable for the New Mums and their piglets to be outside all year round.

So November 2013 saw the arrival of a new Maternity wing on the farm, this was built especially for us in Ireland came across on the Ferry and by road and was then airlifted into position on the farm.

This RSPCA Freedom Food Approved Portapig unit allows the Sows to farrow comfortably in Pens where they can move around.
