Welcome to Packington Free Range

At Packington Free Range, we have a simple philosophy: what’s good for our pigs, chickens and the land will naturally be good for us and better for our customers.

It’s this simple philosophy that enables us to produce the most succulent, richly flavoured meat, often lost in today’s intensive farming methods. We know you’ll enjoy it.

Passion, Respect & Excellence

We believe our family run, free range business has prospered over the last 80 years as a direct result of the three watchwords that stand as pillars of our operation and that help set us apart. It’s our relentless drive for passion, respect and excellence that has allowed us and the generations before us to grow and flourish into the business we are today.

Pip & Sal’s Kitchen

When you’re a part of a farming family, you can’t avoid getting involved in the early mornings and late nights. So, it’s no wonder that Alec’s wife Philippa and Rob’s wife Sally are both keen supporters of the Packington Free Range values. They’ve become passionate about getting the most out of the pork and chicken Alec and Rob bring home, so here’s a few interesting and imaginative recipes direct from their kitchens.

Provenance is one of the key principles of Packington Free Range.

As fourth generation farmers, Rob and Alec Mercer have a lifetime of farming knowledge, passed down from their great-grandfather, grandfather and father.

This familiarity with the land has helped develop their traditional free range approach to rearing pigs and chickens.

If you’ve a question about how we rear our animals, what they’re fed, or where they sleep, Rob or Alec can tell you everything you need to know about traceability. To us, that’s provenance.

We put all our experience and knowledge into creating the very best life for our Packington Free Range pigs. They live their whole lives outdoors, come rain or shine. There they are free to wallow, socialise and graze on our open fields. A happy pig is a healthy pig.
