Pre-Order Now to get your share.
We are getting ready to take the next round of pigs to the processor! Update: The shares are ready and deliveries begin this week! We raised only 12 pigs this year and when these are sold out we won't have more until next fall. They were born last Christmas here on the farm and we have been moving them from paddock to paddock around the farm since they have been weened. They have followed the clovers of spring to the grasses of summer and most recently to the Oak forest where they can fatten up on acorns. If you care about the quality of your meat and the care the animals receive, you can't purchase any better than this.

Our pigs are born and raised here on the farm in large rotational forest or pasture paddocks with supplemental feed from an Alabama feed mill that sources Alabama grown non-gmo ingredients. They are a cross of two heritage breeds, both known for their gentle, lovable natures and their ability to thrive in natural farming systems(aka they have not been bred to live in confined spaces on concrete and only eat corn and soybeans.) Berkshires are known the world over for their exceptional tasting meat. Less well known(actually listed as critically endangered by the American Livestock Breed Conservancy), but equally sought after in the culinary underground, is the Large Black Pig breed- dating back to the 1600's in England when pigs were bred for personality and taste by the people who were going to care for and ultimately bring them to table. The only way these genetics will be preserved for future generations is if small farms like ours and our customers continue appreciating and enjoying the heritage that these great animals represent.
