We raise old fashioned, heritage breeds of pigs.  There are several reasons for this.  We are interested in slow grown, flavourful meat from pigs which live outdoors on pasture.  The old breeds are meant to live outdoors and do very well in this environment.  They like to graze and wallow and sunbake.  They grow at a slow rate and put down lovely nutritious fat with incredible flavour.  These breeds have become rare since the advent of pink commercial indoor-raised pigs.  The commercial breeds grow fast and lean, and are kept in dreadful indoor, intensive piggeries.  We do not support treating animals this way.  We believe in giving our animals the very best life possible.  If people were more connected to their food, the world would be a healthier, happier place with less cruelty.  If we eat meat, we surely must recognise that a being will lose its life.  We accept this, and respectfully raise and slaughter our animals to feed our family.
