we raise our own heritage breed pigs
Tamworth, spotted gloucester and berkshire hogs are cross bred for heartiness and meat quality on our farm in Craftsbury, Vermont. Seasonally, they are put to pasture in spent vegetable fields to root out weeds while tilling and fertilizing the soil. They also drink protein rich whey, leftover from the cheesemaking process, along with gleaned organic vegetables and artisan cheese bits. Their meat is well structured with nice marbling - succulent and flavorful when cooked.
Because farming pigs is complimentary to our other agricultural pursuits, we are able to keep the scale of operation in balance with natural systems and our focus on quality.
