The Official Website of the

Berkshire Pig Breeders Club


Club Membership

Will all members please note that our bank account details have changed and a new standing order mandate for 2013 needs to be completed. This can be found in the section 'How to Join'. If you have not already done so please complete and send to our membership secretary Tracey Bretherton as soon as possible, so that you can continue to receive the newsletter, have access to our on-line For Sale noticeboard, have your details in our Member's Section so that prospective buyers can find you, have a voice at our AGM and just generally be part of our community, which is open to all rare-breed pig breeders

Without you, the club cannot continue.



The Berkshire Pig Breeders Club was founded in 1983 for three reasons: to promote the Berkshire breed, to further communication between breeders and to encourage the keeping of pedigree Berkshire pigs. This website has been designed to fulfil those objectives: it is a comprehensive online resource for members, enthusiasts and newcomers.

We keep a selection of articles from recent newsletters here on the website. We also add other information that will be relevant to pig breeders. Use the links in blue below.

If you're looking for good quality stock, visit our online directory of members, who will be happy to help you. Alternatively, visit our busy noticeboards, where you can read or contribute to discussions. Please note that as of April 2006, only members can post "for sale" adverts.

If you're not yet a member of the club, we'd be pleased to welcome you. Please feel free to browse our website before downloading the membership form, which is available by clicking here. If you have any queries, please contact Tracey Bretherton, our membership secretary.

Marketing E-mails and
Product Endorsement

We've been told of members (and possibly others) receiving email messages that claim to be associated with or endorsed by the club. Please note that the club has nothing to do with these: we have not recommended any products and nor have we provided email addresses. These are simply marketing scams and are best ignored.
