Berkshire

The farrowing hutches are full early spring and fall with the litters of our pastured pork.  Our handpicked breeding stock are top of the line with their kind attitude and high quality meat.  When the piglets are weaned they are moved to a pasture that is planted in fresh dark green rye and turnips.  A custom locally milled feed is supplemented to help round out their diet.  With our natural approach we are able to raise healthy hogs with zero antibiotics, medications or vaccines.  Our hand picked Berkshire hogs breeding stock are known for a wonderful fat/meat ratio that makes a very tender marbled meat that is great for traditionally smoked bacon!
