We raise Gloucestershire Old Spot and Berkshire hogs. During the growing season we plant a variety of cool weather plants for them to graze; forage peas, oats, and rape seed. During the summer months they‘re on pastures seeded with clover, alfalfa, and native grasses. In the fall, they enjoy pumpkins, apples and buckwheat. They’re also fed raw milk. During the winter months our pigs live in hoop houses deeply bedded with straw and stalk bales. Throughout their gestation our sows have access to pasture. At farrowing time they’re brought inside the barn where they live in deeply bedded group housing. After a couple weeks the sows and their piglets return to the pasture.
Our animals are antibiotic and hormone free!
Pigs, given access to good forage, are able to regulate their own diet. They know just what to consume to naturally balance their health.
Because they have their noses in the dirt at an early age, pasture raised pigs don’t need injections of iron (like pigs in confinement do). Pasture raised pigs obtain all the iron they need from the soil.
Raw milk is a natural parasitic and internal disinfectant. It keeps the pigs healthy and supplies protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Forest Hill Farm Pork:
Forget the other white meat, it’s dry, flavorless, and designed to compete with chicken. Pork isn’t chicken, it was never meant to be. Our pork is dark meat, it’s tender and flavorful. Give it a try!
Whole and half hogs are available email us for details
