Lucies Farm has begun raising Kurobuta pork from pure-bred Berkshire pigs. Its pedigree Aberdeen Angus cattle are raised in the traditional Japanese Kobe style.

In the tradition of luxury, Lucies Farm cares for a handful of pampered doggie guests in its newly opened luxury Dog Resort, complete with dog massages, canine hydrotherapy, and even canine acupuncture.

  • Pedigree Beef Raised in the Japanese Kobe Tradition

Customers are willing to wait up to one month for Scottish | Kobe sirloin steaks and three months for Scottish | Kobe beef fillet steaks. The Lucies Farm pedigree Highland and Aberdeen Angus cattle enjoy a luxurious diet of grain and beer. Farm staff massage them regularly. The resulting beef is aged for 21 days before being taken to a traditional butcher for dressing out.

  • Kurobuta: The Most Prized Pork in the World

Kurobuta means "black pork" and it comes from the UK's very own Berkshire breed. In Japan, Kurobuta pork is almost as famous as Kobe beef. The Lucies Farm pure-bred Berkshire pigs adore their special grain and beer diet. And, while the cattle don't like the bubbles, the pigs love their lager cold, right from the can. In addition to Berkshires, the farm raises pure-bred Tamworths. While rare in numbers today, the two breeds have long-defined fine British pork.

  • Even the Dogs Run Free on Our Farm

Lucies Farm recently opened its Dog Resort and the Ritz Canine, a day spa for dogs. The Resort specialises in pampering just a handful of dogs at any one time. Resort guests enjoy:

  • individualised attention
  • three one-hour walks daily in a private 17-acre woodland
  • nutritionally-balanced meals made on the farm

Owners can check on their companions 24/7 by way of the resort webcam, or visit an online gallery for photographs of their dog at play. As a memento of a stay at Lucies Farm, the "pho-dographer" can turn gallery images into canvas prints, handbags, or a coffee table book.

The Ritz Canine day spa gives resort guests opportunities to go swimming in a heated pool, relax with a massage or obtain relief from aches and pains with an acupuncture treatment.

As a side note, farm staff quickly realised that the pigs enjoy swimming, too. The Midlands equivalent of swimming with dolphins at a farm in sunny Worcestershire. And you won't even need a personal flotation device.
