Regenerative Organic Pork
I met an old farmer the other day who proudly declared to me, “My pigs NEVER went outside!” And I replied, “MY pigs never go INSIDE!”
Why our pork is better for YOU:
- our Heritage breed Large Black/Tamworth pigs live in woods and fields as nature intended,
- where they have plenty of room to root, run and play OUTSIDE fully expressing their “pig-ness” (to quote Joel Salatin)
- Live in small groups and get plenty of attention and frequent contact with humans so they are less stressed.
- We feed them locally sourced certified organic feed and minerals including micro-nutrients and probiotics from Melvin Martin, Martin’s Farm Supply.
- No toxins, no chemicals, no drugs, it’s as clean AND nutritious as food can possibly be.
- We practice Regenerative farming which focuses on frequent moves to fresh pasture or forested areas and the health of the micro-organisms in the soil.
All of this leads to (imho) pork meat which TASTES noticeably better than pigs raised in a factory farm
Best tasting pork I’ve ever had! – Mike C.
The pork chops were DIVINE! Also I made delicious Thai pork meatballs with a spicy chili sauce last night using your ground pork. So Yummy! – Mary F.
We use local artisan butchers who are happy to customize cuts specifically for you.
You be the judge…
Instead of living in a crowded concrete “factory farm,” Our pigs live outside and are free to root for grubs and bugs and… roots. We do small groups of hardy Large Black/Tamworth heritage breeds who can handle our severe winters here in upstate New York.
We feed them locally sourced organic feed from Melvin Martin, Martin’s Farm Supply.
We use no pesticides. We treat our animals with natural preventive supplements for natural robust health. In addition, our pigs are part of our regenerative agriculture “team.” They are the first “shock troops” to hit the ground on old, overgrown farmsteads where brush and brambles have taken over. Pigs are natures PLOWS.
We do our best to move them frequently so they are constantly exploring new areas (which they LOVE) while we seed and rest each area they leave. After the pigs have disturbed the soil,The next step is sheep…
We use a local, family owned USDA inspected processing facility that allows us to customize YOUR order.
The benefits of this to you are:
- The animals never leave our farm.
- Raised with love and Humanely treated. This means their meat is not laced with stress and fear hormones.
- You can deal directly with our custom butcher to choose what specific cuts you want (for whole & half hog orders)
- If you’re local, you can give us a call and stop by to choose your cuts.
- If you’re in or around Albany New York we deliver to your area once a month.
- If you’re anywhere else we can ship directly to your door.
