Berkshires, Duroc-Berk Crosses
Our pigs are Berkshires and Duroc-Berkshire Crosses raised in the Old Forest of Big Spring and Highland Farms. While much of their diet comes from foraging, they are also fed non-GMO feed from a local feed mill that contains no added hormones, no antibiotics, and no medications.
Old Forest pigs are raised in a low stress environments, and rotated through new paddocks each week. The amount of space available at Big Spring and Highland Farms means that pigs will never return to the same spot in a given year. They are raised in a way that is conscious of the pig’s well-being, the environment, and the people who will ultimately enjoy the meat!
