Eliza 

the name of our Woolly Pig.  Named for an original artwork that hung in the foyer of Madam Sixty Ate – Eliza is inspired by the most famous rare breed pig, the Hungarian Mangalica which grows a thick woolly coat similar to a sheep.

Known for its unique depth of flavour, this pig was almost made extinct until they made a comeback being the favoured pig among chefs which adore its full fat and flavour.  Also known as the ‘Kobe of Pork’ in some circles – we simply call our pig Eliza.
