Video: Molly the Middle White pig is in labour!
7th April 2020
The Middle White is one of the rarest breeds of pig in the world, and at Tatton Park we have our very own – she’s called Molly!
She’s got a great character and really is my most favourite pig of the lot at work, so you can imagine how excited I was when she gave birth here at the farm.
I sat with her for most of her litter being born and it was an amazing experience. Being a farmer, one of my favourite jobs is to help bring new life into the world, and I still love doing that as much today as I always have done.
