We believe that animals should be raised in a way that mimics nature and ALWAYS treated with the utmost respect and care.
Our Idaho Pasture Pigs, Red Waddle, Berkshire, and other heritage breed pigs are raised in their natural habitat - the fields and woods. Our pigs dig and forage for nuts, roots, grass, and clover.
Our pigs have free access to wholesome and nutritious food.
In addition to what they forage for, we supplement with a specially formulated certified organic mix of field peas, oats, alfalfa, kelp, probiotics, vitamins, minerals, and Redmond Sea Salt.
This is truly pasture raised pork!!
When you raise healthy animals in a way that mimics nature, you create the most nutrient dense foods! We let our pigs be pigs - they're free to dig in the dirt, roll in the mud, and make ponds of water to splash in. We encourage this instinctual behavior. Happy animals that live in a low stress environment create delicious, healthy food.
Why do we raise pigs this way?
Pigs are meant to live their lives outside, eating grass, roots, berries, nuts, and anything else they can find for foraging. 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, chicken, and lamb, 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 nearly 1 year 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.
