Pasture

It is well established that pastured livestock produces meat with lower levels of saturated fat and higher levels of vitamins, minerals, CLA, and Omega 3. The healthiest freshest feed possible is given without medications. This, in addition to the healthy environment outdoors, allows the pig to grow free ranging on pasture without abnormal stress. They also enjoy the fresh untreated water, fresh air, and plenty of room to roam, play, and exercise. This all contributes to natural muscle development and lower saturated fat.

Feed

We do not capitalize on the nature of a hungry pig to eat almost anything. We never feed rendered animal products for fat and protein as is done in industrial hog production. No antibiotics or artificial growth stimulants ere ever used. All of our feed is ground, mixed, and prepared fresh at the farm.  We finish the pigs with all vegetarian inputs such as alfalfa, linseed, and flax meals with Icelandic kelp and fresh local grains like barley, wheat, oats, triticale, and peas grown by our neighbors. No corn or soy is used. This feed mix is provided free choice on pasture along with fresh fruit and vegetables as they are available. They love the apples and squash the most.
