Our pigs are heritage breeds (Tamworth/Berkshire) which are better suited to a life in the field and famous for their bacon.  They are rotated regularly onto clean pasture where they eat clover, alfalfa, wild mushrooms, forbs and anything else tasty they can find! They have a hog ration made of local grains available to them 24/7, which provides the majority of their energy requirements. Flavor is largely determined by the diversity of the diet, and plant diversity in the diet increases phytochemical exposure for the animal, meaning this will be the most flavourful, natural pork, you will ever taste! 

Pastured pork is not just free range, it's far superior to free range. Why? Free range could simply be a group of pigs in a large outdoor dirt pen. Pastured pork is rotated around so there is always fresh grass, legumes and forbs for them to eat and explore. We raise our pigs mimicking the natural life of their wild ancestors as closely as possible. 

 

The cost is $3.95/lb based on the hanging weight plus approximately $1.30/lb butchering costs. This is more or less expensive based on how much extra smoking/curing you have done to your pork. Typical hanging weights are 80-100lbs (you can choose heavy or light). This will give you 60-70lbs of pork in the box to eat, the difference in weight is skin/fat/bone that is thrown away.
