Joyce and Charles Ashbridge (mother and son) founded Taste Tradition on New Year's Day 2004. Their success is testament to the increased value people place on animal welfare, traditional methods and high quality, beautifully tasting real produce.
Nestled near the top of Sutton Bank in North York Moors National Park, the Ashbridge family have farmed in Cold Kirby for three generations. The traditional method of breeding, rearing and finishing livestock used in our grandfather's day are still evident in Charles's farming protocols.
All of their pork at Taste Tradition is of rare or traditional breed origin, typically Gloucester Old Spot, Saddleback, Berkshire, Middle White and Large Black. These breeds carry an extra bit of fat which helps to infuse moisture and a superbly distinctive flavour into the meat whilst it cooks.
The pigs consume natural feed, which is a factor responsible for the high quality and flavour of the pork that they produce. The sows usually produce two litters (9-11 piglets) per year, and are left to furrow unattended in their own outdoor huts. Specialist rations have been formulated which are free of GM products and are always enjoyed by Taste Tradition pigs.
