Pasture Raised Pork
With management intensive grazing, dedicated areas of our pastures are portioned off, allowing us to move our pigs to new pasture each day. This allows our pigs to have access to new nutritious grasses and herbs regularly, while providing time for the other pastures to begin regrowth and rejuvenation. This grows the soil on our farm and benefits the farm ecosystem. Throughout most of the year, you will find our pigs grazing the grasses of the pastures. In order to maintain optimal health, our pigs are fed a small amount of grain with minerals every few days. Throughout heavy winters, our pigs are fed grass silage made from grasses grown on our land. No other food sources or hormones are used.
Pasture raised, primary grass fed pigs provide the most nutritious pork meat products. Pigs raised on pasture have more vitamin D, selenium (a vital antioxidant), significantly more vitamin E, and more healthful fatty acids, than pigs raised on grains and other food sources. In turn, our meats are packed full of nutrients, vitamins and healthy fats.
