A Yorkshire farmer who was awarded the Observer Food Monthly's
prestigious 'Best Producer' title is set to expand his operation
thanks to grants totalling £87,000 from Defra's Rural Enterprise
Scheme (RES) and Processing and Marketing Grant (PMG).
Timothy Wilson, from Grange Farm, Levisham, produces premium quality,
free-range pork, lamb and beef under 'The Ginger Pig' trademark on
his 300-acre farm on the North York Moors. The additive-free meat is
served in top London restaurants and is available through Ginger Pig
outlets at the capital's Borough Market and Marylebone High Street.
