Our sows (mother pig) are Berkshires who are very good at raising their offspring out on pastures. This breed is known for their rich flavor, darker colored meat, and beautiful marbling. They are also a hearty breed that are well suited for our cold winters.
The pigs spend their day doing what pigs enjoy doing; wallowing, running, scratching, sunbaths and of course what pigs do best… rooting! We spend our time moving them around to new plots of land to explore. In addition to grass land we always allow pigs to have a section of woodland to explore.
