They WILL NOT do well if purchased from us and placed in a confinement pen to "Fatten".

when given the option, Our pigs always choose

GRASS or hay rather than bagged feed!

On a small/traditionally sized "FAMILY FARM" such as ours,

it's easy to care for all our animals and crops by avoiding the use of chemical's.

Our Pastured Pigs are supplemented with a ground Corn & ground Alfalfa Hay feed.

In the winter they consume an 800/lb. bale of alfalfa/clover/mixed grass hay about every 2 weeks.


We DO NOT give any of breeding pigs or our piglets iron shot's,

notch their ears or clip their teeth.

They don't need the iron shot's because they get the minerals they need by being out on pasture,

and their "wolf teeth" end up falling out on their own after 6-8 weeks anyway.

So why stress out the piglets and ourselves by performing unnecessary procedures

that nature takes care of NATURALLY?


Shots of any kind are simply not needed when their raised outdoors in a closed herd such as ours.

Our Pig's have 24 hour a day access to the great outdoors.....
