Fancy some juicy pork belly, oak-smoked bacon and glorious gammon? We’re giving away a R500 voucher for Loving Hams in Winterton, KZN to one lucky Durban reader.
Geoffrey Luffingham arrived in Durban in 1931 on a Royal Enfield Motorbike with a suitcase and a tenner in his trousers. He started out working in a piggery in Cedarville for Bunny Chaplin, Charlie Chaplin’s cousin. Five years later he bought Riverside Farm in Winterton. He started pig farming, and dutifully walked his pigs from the farm to the local railways to be transported to Escort Bacon Factory.
In 1968, his son, Nigel took over the running of the farm. He grew the farm from an 85 to a 680-sow piggery at its peak. Nigel slaughtered his own pigs via a pig abattoir in Glencoe, and marketed them in KZN, the Free State and as far afield as Cape Town; a pioneering achievement for this time.
His son Lance took over the running of the farm in 1998, and Loving Hams Meats – derived from the family surname, Luffingham – was opened in 2006. Delivering the full range of pork products, from sausages to bacons, cold meats, gammons and primal cuts, to addresses all over Durban.
