pastured, organic-fed pork
We raise largely Tamworth/Old Spot crosses (some are more mutt than that!). All of them are born right here on the farm. They spend as much of the year outdoors as we can manage, housed in their movable “pig palace” which is rotated through our lush pastures. We utilize their natural rooting tendencies to control weeds and break up sod prior to planting a field to crops. They are fed a certified organic ration. They also receive a generous share of our "reject" vegetables, efficiently recycling our produce into pork!
Pork is available by the quarter, half, or whole hog in either the spring or fall. Customers are charged a flat per-pound price ($7.95/lb for Spring 2017) and receive the full variety of cuts, from ham and bacon through chops and sausage.
We hope to have pork by the piece available in Summer 2017, and hope to be Certified Organic by Fall 2017.
