Our pigs are pasture raised with unlimited turnout, and social time with other animals. In addition to grazing, they are fed hay, a quality non-GMO (corn and soy-free) feed, and locally sourced fresh fruit and vegetables. We do not use any hormones, anti-biotics, or other extra additives while raising our pigs. We pride ourselves on raising happy pigs and you can rest assured that your pork was as ethically-grown and well cared for as possible. Our meat is professionally slaughtered and butchered here on Vancouver Island ensuring all health and safety standards are met while lowering your meat-related carbon footprint.

  1. I can’t sat I really can ‘like’ your blog as I don’t eat meat. I don’t mind people eating meat, it’s just not for me. I applaud you, however, for your choices in how your raise your pigs. The cruel mistreatment of the animals is one reason I don’t eat meat.

    • Thanks for your comment – I totally agree with you that many of our animal raising practices are unacceptable. For those who choose to eat meat (or eggs, or dairy) it’s really important to try to find a source where you know the animals are treated well. Often that means paying a higher price, but in the end, it’s the animals that ultimately benefit.
