Good news

After five years the Australian Ark Commission of Australia (chaired by Cherry Ripe) has won approval for Wessex Saddleback pigs to be added to the Ark of Taste.
These are the pigs Slow Food Hobart members Lee Christmas, Matthew Evans and Rodney Dunn raise and have done so much to promote, the “name” breed for Matthew and Ross O’Meara’s Rare Food, and the breed celebrated in our AGM dinner, when Lee Christmas cooked and supplied the meat back in 2007.
