An innovative partnership

Pete’s Greens and Jasper Hill Farm have joined forces; the vegetable farm and cheesemaker are working together to pasture heritage breed pigs in seasonal rotation with vegetable production and hay cropping. The goal is to utilize land more continuously while building soil instead of depleting it. Meanwhile, the pigs are taking care of leftover veggie scraps, cheese bits and whey, which gives them a more varied diet than they would enjoy if they were raised independently.
