Why should you buy your pork from us?
This should be the first reason you buy any food. Meat is no exception, and you won’t find better tasting pork than ours. We raise “heritage” breeds of pigs that are not generally in commercial production. These heritage breeds grow slowly and live off the land grazing on grass and organic grains from our farm.
Being outdoors and rummaging on the farm has two benefits. First, more movement equals more muscle (meat), which is more red in color than what you may be accustomed to. Second, the pig regulates its body temperature through the winter with more fat, which gives the meat greater marbling. These traits of firmer flesh and good marbling create an eating experience that is unlike cheap grocery store pork. Our Old Spot pigs have a beautiful ratio of meat to fat. The meat is well marbled, making it juicy and tender.
Buying a whole animal means that you get your pork at a discount. Your total cost will be approximately 30% less than if you bought individual cuts of meat from our farmers market stands.
