Viral Pork Campaign

Stand By Your Ham

— February 23, 2008 — Lifestyle
The UK's pork industry has been hurting pretty badly, but pig farmers aren't getting discouraged yet. At least not until they've tested the powers of online virals.

A group of about 20-30 farmers gathered in London to produce a song called "Stand by Your Ham," a parody of the Tammy Wynette song, "Stand by Your Man."

The industry has been rough on independent farmers due to "greedy supermarket chains and rising feed prices," according to Yahoo News.

"It's a lighthearted way of drawing attention to a very serious issue," said Yorkshire pig farmer Richard Longthorp. "If this doesn't stop, then as sure as eggs is eggs, the industry is going to disappear."

The song can be heard at

The lyrics:
Right now it's hard to make a living
Rearing all your pigs for pork and Ham
The supermarkets make money
But we don't make any money
And that's quite hard to understand

But if they gave us a little more money
Gave us farmers, a fairer share.
Coz we take good care of our pigs
We're so proud of them
To us they're more than pork and ham

Stand by your ham.
Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
Help us to stay in business
Because, our pigs, are worth it.

Stand by your ham.
Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
Keep givin' all the help you can
Stand by your ham

So if you love your British breakfast
The crackling on your Sunday joint
Keep asking for local produce
We work so hard to bring it to you
Look for our Mark on pork and ham

Stand by your ham.
Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
Help us to stay in business
Because, our pigs, are worth it.

Stand by your ham.
Sau-sa-ges, Pork And Bacon
Look for the Mark whenever you can
Stand by your ham
