What does forest-fed pork mean?

We start our pigs on the pasture for the first month of their life but then they spend the rest of their life in the woods in 1-5 acre paddocks.  The pigs are moved to new paddocks every 3-7 days.  This not only allows them the opportunity to forage for nutrient dense wild plants, roots, shrubs. etc. but it also ensures that the land is protected and not overgrazed. This greatly adds to the flavor and nutrition of the meat. Try our pork and see if you don't believe that it tastes better than any of the competition around. 

What does free-range really mean for our farm? 

Our egg laying chickens for example roam free and can leave if they wish, they are not in a pen or confined. They get fresh air and sunshine, what a concept! Confinement chickens are penned inside all day every day without these things. Come visit the farm and see if what we do suits you. It is a great idea to go see where your food comes from whether us or another farm. Most of what you buy even at the health food store you will not buy if you visit the farms!

What is Non-GMO Verified feed? 

Non-GMO verified feed has been evaluated and approved as part of the Non-GMO  Project.  This feed is used 100% for our pigss and egg layers.  To learn more about what this seal means visit: http://www.nongmoproject.org/learn-more/understanding-our-seal/. We believe that this seal is better than organic as it requires that less than 1% of GMO's are allowed in the feed.  Comparing this to Organic feed, it has been field tested and shown to contain at least 13% GMO's as there are no regulations on the amount of GMO's that can be contained in the final product of Organic feeds.

How can we schedule a farm tour?  

We are always glad to give farm tours and show customers around.  Just call or email to schedule an appointment. We believe it is very important for customers to get in touch with their food and see first hand how it is grown and raised to have confidence in their buying decisions.
