We believe natural is better, sows farrow on pasture with individual huts and piglets have access to pasture 24/7 beginning at birth. We never use growth hormones or steroids.
Grazing, Pasture and Nutrient Management Practices
Our pigs are free range 24/7 and we use rotational grazing for feeder hogs. We never use farrowing crates or stalls. Sacrifice areas are set up for rainy seasons. Feeders are continually moved onto fresh pasture with electric fence netting pastures are allowed to rest.
We do not have a problem with insects and cats keep pests to a minimum. Manure is removed from housing and shelter on a regular basis and field is harrowed when sitting idle.
