Oxfest 2018 – Report

The sun definitely does shine on the righteous!  The Oxford Sandy and Black Pig Group (OSBPG)  held their first gathering of OSB enthusiasts on Saturday 5 May 2018 by kind invitation from Maggi Gardiner and Charlie Mead of South Worden Farm, Bradworthy.  We had fantastic support, scrumptious food and excellent entertainment from Phillip Greenaway!

An auction was held whereby proceeds were shared between the OSBPG help fund and the members choice, Air Ambulance.  We raised GBP827.00 through the generous gifts contributed by:


Sallie Wakley – OSB Sculpture

Juliette Hayward – OSB ceramic

Sam Bowden – Deerpark AI

River Cottage – Pig in a day course

Maunders Farm Supply Store, Launceston – wheelbarrow/tools/overalls/pig oil

Lesley Cooper – Jewellery

Andrew O’Shea – Curing Kit

Amanda Lawrence – Pig Whiskey Tumblers

Louise Mackley – 23cm felt OSB pig

Ellie & Chris Paddock – Working with heavy horses at Hitch In Farm, Dartmoor

Richard Bramble – 3 pint OSB Milk Jug

Dennis Ballard – Cynthia OSB Gilt

John Lewis – Orange handbag

Kim Brook – OSB Tea Towel/Apron/bag/finger bowl


We had a tremendous turnout and the support and good will was truly a memorable one!


See you in 2019!
