Blantyre Farms prides itself on being an active member of both our local community, and also the wider Australian Pork Industry.
Each year we host school groups and university students at our piggery, with the goal of showcasing the pork industry.
We are active participants and sponsors in many local community events, schools, arts societies, sporting organisations, and crisis care for those in need, in particular the NSW Farmers partnership with the Salvation Army, and the Young Pork Producers, aimed at providing a hot Christmas dinner to those in our community in need.
