Pigs are meant to live their lives outside, eating grass, roots, berries, nuts, and anything else they can find for foraging. To ensure they have sufficient calories, they also have access to a certified organic, non-GMO ration consisting of only peas and oats. We NEVER feed corn, soy, hormones, or antibiotics. When available, we also provide an abundance of certified organic vegetables from our good friends and neighbors at Blooming Glen Farm CSA. Just like with our beef, it takes much longer to raise pigs this way and costs significantly more, but to us it's worth it. Here on our farm, it takes us double the amount of time compared to the commercial pork industry to raise pigs, requiring us at least 9-10 months of grazing time out in the fields. This is not the lean and flavorless "other white meat". This is real pork with beautiful marbling, a deep red color, and most importantly - FLAVOR! We've had many customers tell us this is the best pork they've ever tasted and we couldn't agree more. We're convinced you'll feel the same way too.
