We specialize in producing high quality chemical free pastured pork. We raise our hogs in a seasonal rotational grazing system where we plant forages for our pigs to graze and root. In the spring we purchase young pigs that we rotate on pasture spring, summer and fall and let graze peas, oats, millet, beets, turnips, sunflowers, squash, zucchini, pumpkins and more. Our pigs are also fed a nonGMO feed that follows a testing protocol to guarantee the feed is produced without GMOs, pesticides, and herbicides including glyphosate. We do not spray any chemicals in our hog field.
We primarily raise Berkshire hogs, but do experiment with different breeds and crosses. We want pigs that are efficient foragers and grazers and possess characteristics that make them well-suited for outdoor production. Berkshires have been a great match for our production process.
Our approach to raising pigs provides them access to a fresh diverse diet and allows us to protect the health of our soil and pastures by continuously moving them. Rotating hogs across different grounds provides additional health benefits, aids in disease prevention, distributes manure and essentially eliminates any odors associated with confinement hog operations.
RETAIL CUTS & SAUSAGE:
We strive to produce well-marbled, very flavorful pork and offer a variety of individually vacuumed sealed pork cuts in our farm stand and at select partner locations. We process pigs every two weeks from roughly May until January and easily accommodate custom cut orders.
Our standard cuts are below and occasionally we have a few special cuts in the freezer. We produce sausages with a clean list of ingredients and all our products of free of fillers and preservatives.
WHOLE/HALF HOG SHARES:
In the fall we offer whole/half hog shares, one of the most efficient ways financially to purchase fresh local meat. Each cut will be vacuumed sealed. Our whole hogs will provide you about 180 pounds of meat and a half will provide you about 90 pounds of meat. When your meat is ready, we will coordinate pick-up time and location.
