We raise Tamworth Berkshire cross pigs. Berkshires are known for their excellent meat qualities, and Tamworths do well in our Canadian climate. Both are excellent foragers.
We use NO growth hormones.
We feed NO genetically modified (GM) feed.
Absolutely NO animal by-products are used in our feed.
Our pigs are pastured for the summer months, rooting in the soil and foraging for roots, insects, and grasses. They are also fed a GMO-free grain and scraps from our garden and kitchen.
In the winter, the pigs are housed in our roomy barn with plenty of space to move around. They are bedded with straw to keep them warm. Their diet remains the same, but instead of the forage, they are fed hay.
The varied diet gives the meat an amazing flavour.
