Forest Ranged Pork

Pigs in the Woodland

Summertime at Brookhill Farm is when visitors will find little paddocks in the woods where the pigs run and forage. These pigs are growing up to be tasty pork. The difference is truly amazing. First, the pork will be much redder than you see in the supermarket. This is because pork is supposed to be a red meat. Our pigs get plenty of fresh air and exercise which helps develop their muscles.

The flavor of the meat is more pronounced due to their varied diet.  Quite a difference from the colorless, lackluster, and tasteless fare found in supermarkets with a spongy texture that signals factory raised pork to the discerning consumer.  Pork was marketed from 1987 as "the other white meat" as part of an ad campaign.  However, the USDA still classifies pork as a red meat.  The consumer should too!    

The pigs at Brookhill get moved regularly from paddock to paddock so they have fresh ground, acorns, nuts, grubs, weeds, and grasses along with a non-GMO grain feed to supplement their diet. Fresh water is always available and wallows to help the pigs keep cool are also part of the landscape. Our pigs get to live in a pig paradise, which is the way it should be.

Processing is done each Autumn at a USDA processor and is antibiotic and hormone free.  Pork can be purchased whole, half, or quarter.  Pre-ordering is appreciated.
