Welcome to the website of the Tamworth Breeders’ Club!

The club was set up to promote the Tamworth breed and encourage more people to keep registered pedigree stock, in order to preserve this charismatic pig and keep bloodlines alive.

Club membership is open to everyone, whether they keep Tamworths or not. All you need to do is love the breed as much as we do!

Like many other traditional breeds, the Tamworth suffered greatly in the years following the Second World War, as farmers were urged to concentrate on faster-growing, more economical breeds. Numbers became seriously low, but, thanks to the hard work of dedicated breeders, the Tamworth was saved from extinction.

Although the numbers of registered Tamworths being kept are now much more encouraging, we still need more breeders to carry on the good work into the future.

The breed is still classed as “at risk” by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust. The latest British Pig Association survey (2012) showed a total of 502 registered sows – an increase of 9 on the previous year.

Please enjoy browsing our website, members stock for sale and wanted adverts can be seen in the forum section. If you are looking for Tamworths try the breeders’ directory to find a club member near you.
