Our food, like our message, is fresh and simple. The menu changes daily according to what we have available, and what might be in season. We can serve up anything from our epic Crispy Pig Burger, to tapas with our own charcuterie, or a Middle Eastern feast. We only ever use meat we have reared, , and serve it all from our 1978 Citroen H van and our beach trailer.
Here's our Van before Restoration!
There's more to us than meets the eye. All the meat we serve is bred and raised by us at our farm on the Pembrokeshire Coast, and we're passionate about changing the way people eat. Our food is fresh and homemade. We put a lot of time and care into what we do. That includes our livestock, our food, and the labour of love that was the rebuild of our van.
The Slow in Slow Pig references not only the way we rear our pigs, the method of cooking, and the speed of our driving, but also the Slow Food movement, which strives 'to reconnect people with where their food comes from and how it is produced so they can understand the implications of the choices they make about the food they put on their plates....to encourage people to choose nutritious food, from sustainable, local sources which tastes great'.
Our animals are free range and live a happy outdoor life which makes for a better tasting end product. We only use our own meat so you can be completely satisfied as to where your food comes from. We keep mainly Mangalitza and Saddleback pigs. Saddlebacks are probably our more well known breed, predominantly black with a distinctive white 'saddle'. Mangalitza are a Hungarian breed, a curly coated pig of three different colours, Swallow Bellied, Blonde and Red. We have the Swallow Belly - as the name suggests black with a white under belly, and Blonde varieties. Leader of the pack is big blonde tank of a boar, and gentle giant, Napoleon.
We also have Highland Cattle, and a small herd of sheep which we like to keep until they are technically Hogget, a lamb over twelve months old and which has fantastic flavour, particularly when slow roasted with lots of fresh ground spices and served in a van made flatbread.
When not at The Big Retreat Wales, find us at Broad Haven South beach, in Pembrokeshire, Easter - September, and at Welsh Street Food and music festivals, or hire us for your private party or wedding. We also run sit down suppers throughout the year.
