PASTURE RAISED PORK
Our pigs are raised on pasture and supplemented with a little grain that is locally sourced to provide quality meat. We raise Berkshire crosses, a heritage breed which are know for their outstanding marbling qualities. They have ample space to range and root around outside as they would naturally. We do not inject our animals with steroids or hormones.
Antibiotics are only used when necessary to treat illness and prevent disease outbreaks. This ensures the optimal health and well-being of our animals. Our pigs are handled using low stress and humane methods. We process our pork in a provincially inspected facility as stated by the Government of Alberta.
Our pork can be purchased in a variety of ways:

Try out our Meat CSA (community supported agriculture) – where you prepay for three months of meat, and every week for three months you pick up pre-selected packages of meat at a local pick up location. Meat CSA is $300 for three months – see online store for details on when CSA programs run and pick up locations.
