Pig Meets Lipstick: Elizabeth Hurley's Farm-Fresh Goods

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to grow your own pigs, fatten them up, send them to slaughter, then enjoy the fruits of your labor with a side of scrambled eggs? No? Well, Elizabeth Hurley has. And now, thanks to all those farm animals she received as wedding presents last year, she's making this dream a reality.

Best known for her role as Hugh Grant's arm candy in the 1990s and Mike Myers' love interest in the first Austin Powers movie, Hurley has set up a pig farm on her 100-acre Cotswolds estate. According to ThePigSite, Hurley's meat is Britain's finest. Her breed, Hurley Old Spot, makes for tasty Sunday roast joints and prime sausages.

The pork is sold to local butchers and hotels, so if you're staying at the Lower Slaughter Manor (no, folks, I'm not making this up) or the Cotswold House, you'll likely find yourself eating some Hurley Old Spot. Our compliments to the chef.   


I am so gonna eat some of liz hurley's pork!! thanks for the tip!!

I am bedazzled by her pork.

Now, now, there's no need to bring up Ms. Hurley's cinematic low points. But for those who may not be aware of them, here's a sample:
