From the moment we took that first bite of pork we raised here on our farm we were hooked. Farm fresh pork is miles above store bought pork, but we wanted to see if we could improve flavor and consistency even further. After much research, we are thrilled to announce that starting in 2021 we will be raising and breeding Berkshire pigs.
For over 300 years, Berkshire hogs have been recognized for their amazing meat quality. Known as "Kurobuta" in Japan, the superior taste of Berkshire pork is as prized as Kobe beef, and in many circles is referred to as the Kobe beef of pork. Like its beef counterpart, Berkshire pork boasts beautiful marbling and superb, moist texture. It is said to have a very specific taste, not generic and bland or mild like regular pork, and is renowned for its richness, juiciness, tenderness and overall depth of flavor.
We really do love our pigs, and we like knowing that they are being treated well. Our pigs are fed with a combination of fresh milled grains, and pasture. In addition, to ensure that they have lived their whole lives with love and care, we are moving toward having all of our pigs live on our farm from birth to butcher.
