Pastured Pork Available!

Our delicious pastured pork is now available.

Our pigs are raised without the use of antibiotics. They spend their entire lives outdoors. Outside on pasture they can express their natural behaviors; rooting and enjoying fresh grain, roots, grass, and hay. They are a mixture of Berkshire and Tamworth, two heritage breeds that have hardy characteristics that allow them to flourish outdoors. Heritage breeds have also been selected for the outstanding flavor of their meat.

We have already sold out of roasts. But we have plenty of mouth watering sausage, tender pork chops and a variety of other cuts.

A few nights ago we added our Italian Sausage to tomato sauce for a simple spaghetti dinner. We weren't too hungry, but there wasn't one serving of sauce left over! Tonight Marie cooked some of the bacon for a "breakfast for dinner." The meal turned into two courses because the bacon never made it onto our plates with the rest of the food.

But you don't have to take our word for it. Here is what one of our customers said:

"When I fix dinners I playfully give them a star rating--one star for each
person in the family who likes it. With that rating, the pork gets a
rousing 6 star rating" (A family of five with a guest for dinner.

If you are interested in purchasing pork please call or email to arrange a time yo ucan come out to the farm. For the patient types you can find us at the Downtown Morganton Farmer's Market beginning May 8th 8-noon. We will also be attending the Conover Farmers market and Hickory Farmers Market.
