Here’s the lovely Chloe telling us about being a member!
I have been a member of LIPs for about 13 years and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute! The ladies have become part of an extended family and we all work and play together in harmony like a well oiled tractor! I am particularly excited about developing and delivering our education programmes into schools as I strongly believe that we need to educate the children, to teach them about the benefits of eating healthily, how to cook healthy meals and all the positivity surrounding farming in the UK.
Having worked with pigs for some 44 years, it is a pleasure to talk to the public to tell them not just about the high welfare unit l work on, but the great job Ladies on Pigs do in promoting British pig products via their mobile kitchen.
As well as promoting and educating people about our wonderful red tractor pork I have made new friends, learnt a lot and had fun!

Feedback from a parent:
Pork is something I don’t really cook with, but the recipe booklet my son brought home from school has really encouraged me to use it more. I followed the recipe for pulled pork and it was delicious!
We are delighted to partner with the Ladies in Pigs organisation for many of our school events. Their ethos and passion for educating about food and farming mirrors ours, so it is always a privilege to work with them. The quality of learning and experience that the ladies provide for the children is first-class and their enthusiasm for British Red Tractor pork and farming is infectious.
Ladies in Pigs are great supporters of the Lincolnshire Agricultural Society and I hope that we will continue to collaborate on many educational projects in the future.

You’ll be pleased to know that all the students passed their meat assessments. Many of the group have found good jobs/apprenticeships to move to next year which is great news.
