Welcome to the wild side of pork production! If you're seeking a healthier and more sustainable alternative to conventional pork, look no further than our forest-raised pork.

In this article, we'll delve into the benefits of choosing pork from our pigs raised in their natural habitat and why it's a win-win for both you and the environment.

What is Forest-Raised Pork? 

Forest-raised pork stands apart from its conventional counterparts by allowing pigs to roam and forage in natural forest environments. 

Unlike pigs confined to feedlots or barns, forest-raised pigs have the freedom to explore and feast on a diverse diet of roots, nuts, fruits, and plants.

Health Benefits for YOU

  1. Higher Nutrient Density: Our forest-raised pork boasts a superior nutritional profile, packed with essential vitamins and minerals derived from the pig's varied diet.
  2. Lower Fat Content: Enjoy our leaner cuts of meat with forest-raised pork, promoting a healthier lifestyle.
  3. Balanced Omega-3 to Omega-6 Ratio: With an optimal omega fatty acid balance, our forest-raised pork supports heart health and overall well-being.
  4. Absence of Antibiotics and Hormones: Say goodbye to concerns about antibiotic resistance and hormonal disruption, as our forest-raised pigs are raised without the need for antibiotics or growth hormones.

Environmental Benefits

  1. Preservation of Forest Ecosystems: By utilizing our existing forested areas for pig grazing, our forest-raised pork production helps preserve our precious ecosystems and reduces the need for deforestation.
  2. Reduced Carbon Footprint: Our forest-raised pork production has a lower environmental impact compared to other intensive farming practices, contributing to a healthier planet.
