March - Gatton Pork at the Oxo Tower RestaurantThis March, Gatton Pork from piglets reared by students at Royal Alexandra & Albert School, a state boarding school in Gatton Park, Surrey, has made its way onto the world-class menu at The OXO Tower, London. Reared by 300 students who are either on the Countryside and Environment BTEC course or at after school clubs in the school’s 260 acres of grounds and woodlands, the traditional breed piglets feast only on food they find on the woodland floor, roots, grubs and organic feed.
Paul Spencer Ellis, Headmaster at the Royal Alexandra & Albert School, comments: “Our slow-grown pork is completely organic, without growth hormones or additives. There is a rising demand for this sort of produce as people are increasingly concerned about the environmental impact of food production.”
Jacinta Phelan, Director, Harvey Nichols Restaurants, added: “Royal Alexandra & Albert School is less than 20 miles from the OXO Tower and we are pleased to support them in their aim to involve pupils in the care of animals and plants within their historic landscape.”
