WOODLAND PORK

Our pigs spend most of their lives in our 10 acres of woodlands, happily munching on hickory nuts and walnuts, rooting for grubs, and snuggling together in the shade. When temperatures get really cold, we set them up with piles of straw in our barn, where they spend their days snoozing in pig piles and rooting through their straw bales for seed treats.  We raise primarily Berkshire crosses that we purchase as piglets from Warren Wilson Farm, alongside a few Herefords and Red Wattles from other local farms, because heritage breeds produce the best pork.  The rich, smooth fat on our pork chops melts in your mouth and the dark red meat is full of the sweet, nutty flavors provided by their free access to tree nuts in the Summer and Fall and to apple seconds through the Winter.

We offer a selection of over 15 cuts and sausage flavors so you can appreciate everything from a bratwurst to a country-fried pork chop to a fall-off-the-bone slow-roasted pork shank (or even try making guanciale from our hog jowls!)

Pigs are the animal that got us into farming.  We love their curious interactions, from 10-week-old piglets tentatively nibbling on boots and asking for scratches to 5 month old hogs bounding around us asking to be chased; pigs are a joy to raise, and we love making sure that they have happy, healthy lives at our farm.
