Pasture and Woodland-Raised Pork

We produce humane, environmentally-friendly pork with exceptional flavor. 

Here’s how:

∗Our pigs raised on pasture and woodland are able to root, dig, and run, making healthier and happier animals. 

∗Frequent rotation allows proper management of soil, water, and animal health.

∗Access to sunlight, fresh air, exercise, and wild nutrients make the resulting meat more nutritious than conventional products.

∗Pigs are fed non-soy, Certified Organic feed as a supplement to their foraging

Our pork supports all three aspects of our mission: to support healthy people, healthy economy, and healthy ecology.

HEALTHY PEOPLE:

1.  No GMOs!    85-90% of the corn and soy in animal feed is genetically modified.   Many people have serious and legitimate concerns about how GM foods  affect our health.

2.  Soy is used in most processed foods and most animal feeds.  Due to concerns about soy-allergies and many other potential health problems related to the overuse of soy in our diets, we are eliminating it from our feed.  The result is a more diverse diet for our pigs and a healthier and better tasting meat for you.

HEALTHY ECONOMY:

1. Buying local keeps more money circulating right in our own community.  We’re happy  to support Reedy Fork Farm in Elon, NC when purchasing our Organic, soy-free feed.  This NC Farm has created a market for 18 other farms to grow Certified Organic grains!

2. We get to vote with our dollars and we vote NO to Monsanto, the primary supplier of genetically-modified seeds and Round-up, and YES to responsible farmers.

HEALTHY ECOLOGY:

1.  Organic growing practices for our feed build healthy soil and maintain biodiversity while conventionally-grown grain fills our soil, water, and air with harmful chemicals.

2.    Our feed contains no GM crops which are cross-breeding with native plants and creating Superweeds and Superpests.Click here for more on why we use organic feed.


3.  We raise pigs specifically for their impact on the land and see them as partners in the restoration process.  When rotated frequently, they are helping us to restore a clear-cut pine forest into a productive  landscape of fruit and nut trees and pasture.  Their natural rooting habit stirs wood mulch into the soil and their manure adds fertility.  They also do a great job clearing underbrush in the woods without damaging the established trees.

No wonder it tastes better!
