Pigs raised on pasture, are free to roam and utilize what a pig does best and that is root for food. Once weaned, our pigs are on pasture 100% of the time from Spring through Fall, in the Winter they are given fresh straw and hay along with fruit and vegetables we pick up from local groceries and food banks. Along with free choice pasture, they are given a GMO-free grain ration that we ferment in milk/water to help break down the tough grains making them easier to digest.
Why Pastured Pork?
Pork raised on pasture, is healthy due to the constant fresh air, fresh forage and sunshine. Pasture raised pork is higher in Vitamin A, D and E as well as high in micro-nutrients because of this. Also unlike conventional pork raised in confinement this diverse healthy diet provides the pork with a rich, layer of fat which is a monounsaturated fat similar to that of avocados and olive oil. It is also higher in Omega 3 fatty acids and has a more balanced Omega 3/6 fatty acid ratio. But most importantly, this provides the pigs with a wonderful quality of life, free from stress and rich in what makes a pig a pig.
