FOREST RAISED HERITAGE PORK!
We raise locally farrowed Tamworth/Yorkshire crosses, known for their excellent marbling and moisture-rich meat.
Our pigs are raised in the forest in rotating woodlot paddocks. We believe that animals should be raised in their natural environment and be allowed to express their natural tendencies to root and wallow. We feed our pigs a spray-free, corn free, non-GMO feed. They also get local spent brew grain from Whitetooth Brewery, Organic vegetable pulp from our juice bar, hemp leaves from our hemp farm and local apples in the fall! Instead of using a pharmaceutical dewormer we feed them our own blend of 15 anti-parasitic and immune-boosting herbs. We are raising a small herd so as to not degrade the forest and always provide access to fresh roots & shoots to add to their diet.
We sell our pork by the 1/2 or whole animal and in 20 or 35lb taster packs.
