Pasture-Raised Pork

Our hogs are raised on a natural, non-GMO feed from

Hiland Naturals.  They have had no antibiotics, hormones, or chemicals.  Their diet is supplemented with the extra milk from our family Jersey cow Snow White, eggs from our ducks and pastured hens, freshly sprouted fodder that we grow here from wheat or barley seed, and seasonal produce and plants from our gardens. 

 

We raise heritage breed hogs, including Red Wattle and Berkshire, on our farm in Greenville, Texas.   They are pasture-raised, rotated through the various wooded areas of our farm.  

 

This has allowed them to do what they were made to do, forage and dig up roots and acorns, cleaning up the unwanted brush from our woods and tilling up the soil.  When we move them to a new paddock, they have little interest in their feed at first, because they are too busy enjoying the natural forage.  And we are always amazed to see the beautiful green grass coming up in the areas where they spent time just being hogs. 

Red Wattle is a breed that was 

nearly lost to extinction for a 

time, but now is in high demand

because it is leaner than other 

varieties of pork, and its

exquisite flavor and texture have made it the winner of numerous pork taste tests. 

Pasture-raised hogs take a bit longer to reach processing weight than hogs raised in confinement, due to the fact that they have more room to move around and be active.  After nine months or so, when the hogs reach about 300 pounds, we take them to Fischer’s Meat Market, a USDA inspected processing facility in Muenster, Texas. 

The Berkshire breed was discovered more than 300 years ago in the United Kingdom.

 

Berkshire pork

is known for its rich flavor, marbling, and tenderness.
