How We Care for Our Pigs
Hay is for horses, better for cows, pigs don't eat it because they don't know how!
Well, pigs can eat hay but they don't derive as many calories from it as ruminant animals, such as cows. Pigs require six nutritional components in their diets: water, carbohydrates, fats, protein, minerals, and vitamins. After the pigs are weaned from their mothers they eat a complete diet in a pelleted form. They also enjoy rooting around in the woods looking for acorns, grubs, and other natural goodies!
Our pigs call the barn in the woods their home. They enjoy nestling down in the hay and bedding and waking up to the sun shining in their window! Our pigs are the late risers on the farm, often not coming out until after 10 am. I guess you could call them the teenagers.
We raise Berkshire and Duroc pigs. Berkshires are known for their black and white markings. They originated from Berkshire County in England and were brought to America in the 1800s. Durocs are a burnt red color and have floppy ears. Both breeds of pigs are known for their juicy, flavorful, and tender meat.
You can purchase our farm-raised pork at our Farm Stand in frozen individual packages. Our meats are also available in bundles and bulk packages. Farm stand hours are listed on the footer at the bottom of this page.
