Frequently Asked Questions
What makes us different?
We are not organic, but we were trained by the man who wrote the standards for OEFFA, one of the first organic certifiers in the nation. We’ve had our farm inspected by an organic certifier and were assured that we could certify our place. We decided against it since we sell locally to friends and family. We'd be more than happy to give you a farm tour!
We use only certified organic feed for the hogs.
Our cows are 100% grass fed and eat only fresh grass and high quality chemical free hay and rich pasture.
We compost our own manure and use it to fertilize the fields. We do not use any chemical or artificial sprays on our pasture, only compost.
We are aware of current organic standards and follow them voluntarily.
1. What is special about your pork?
Our pork micro-marbles and is red, so it looks more like beef. It has intermuscular fat. Our pigs are bacon type pigs like our grandparents used to raise. The meat is very tender and juicy because of it.
2. What breed of hogs do you have?
We have Large Black and Mangalitsa cross pork. These breeds of pork consistently win awards from chefs and we have heard from many customers that this is the best meat they have ever tasted.
