Our Homestead Hogs are Tamworths, a Heritage breed that is cold hearty and excellent foragers. Our pigs live on grass and enjoy the perks of living on an Organic produce farm; they eat any left over or imperfect produce such as carrots, cabbage, zucchini etc. The animals are rotationally grazed around the perimeter of the farm, keeping them happy and on fresh ground while keeping the soil happy, fertilized and not over grazed. We raise the Organic hay we feed to our cows and pigs, and we are now growing the Organic triticale grain they will also eat. In this way we create a closed loop system of producing the feed and fertility for this microcosm that is a biodynamic farm. The animals live a happy free-roaming life, and they are slaughtered here on the farm. On-farm slaughter means the animals are not packed into a trailer and hauled to a processing facility- a process that often causes the release of stress hormones into the body and into the meat. We are dedicated to our animals living out their whole life and ending it here at the farm.

 

We offer half and whole hog shares. The cost includes custom cut/ wrap services and all animal processing fees.
