Welcome! We are a small scale family operation that picked up raising hogs because we were sick of the options we had, and all the tricky wording used, in trying to buy pork for our family. When chemical castration became public knowledge, we knew the grocery store was no longer an option. So we were off to find a breed! All research for quality, heirloom pork led us to the Berkshire---the pork equivalent of Kobe beef. Known as "The Other Red Meat" this breed is prized the world over for it's incredibly decadent and completely original flavor.
Originating in England, and bred specifically for the King of England's own personal meat supply, this is a very old, and very special breed. In the 1800's, Japanese diplomats were gifted with Berkshire pigs, and "Kurobuta" (translated "Black Pig") is still the premium pork of Japan!
Our purebred Berkshires are raised on pasture. Although this means different things to different people, and can be a misleading marketing ploy, here's what it means to us: Our pigs live in the pasture 100% of the time. Not confinement, not a small pen, not a dirt lot in view of the pasture, and not let out for part of the day. Our Berks live like a pig should. 100% grass.....wide open, green grass pasture all day, and all night from the time we welcome them, until they are ready to come to you.
Our pigs grow on grass and garden/orchard fresh produce. The feed we supplement with, we personally grow or carefully source, then grind and mix ourselves on the farm. We proudly use our home-grown, non-GMO corn, wheat, oats, and alfalfa in every batch.
We give our pigs ZERO hormones, vaccines, medications, antibiotics, chemical wormers, or anything else you can think of! These pigs are all-natural!
Today, Berkshire Pork is the most highly sought after pork in the world. Berkshire pork looks and tastes like no other pork. Unlike commodity pork or “The Other White Meat” Berkshire pork is visibly different. It has a darker richer color with an abundance of intramuscular marbling. Its flavor is distinctive with an unparalleled juiciness and tenderness for pork.

Berkshire pork is a favorite of Chef Wolfgang Puck-----and is the Monday special at his Las Vegas restaurant. Free-range Berkshire pork belly is the main ingredient in a four-star official MasterChef featured recipe. Oh, and Chef Gordon Ramsay raises his own Berks! Food writer Bruce Aidells says that Berkshire is "by far the best tasting pork I’ve encountered".
And now you can have it in your freezer! Local, clean, raised right, and fresh from our farm to your table!
