Lachlan and Lauren began their free range pig farm Bundarra Berkshires in 2010 when Lauren saw the call for locally grown, ethically raised heritage pork. The idea for a 'paddock full of happy pigs' grew and fostered the way for handcrafted farmstead charcuterie and smallgoods and opened up a 'new' way of old farming, regeneratively. Visit their butcher shop and deli at 118, Punt Rd Barham.
In 2006 Jim Arrowsmith and Pete Tonge, both from Chorley in Lancashire, were backpacking around Australia, but couldn’t find a decent pork pie, ‘for love nor money’ so decided to make them themselves, and so the business was born.
These days Pacdon Park has relocated to the banks of the Mighty Murray River near the twin towns of Echuca (Victoria) Moama (NSW). Our ethos is still the same as when we started, to ‘make what we miss’. We use the finest local Australian ingredients, Free Range Pork and time and tested traditional recipes to produce magnificent British Foods. Visit their shop at 464 Perricoota Rd Moama.
