Pastured Pork


Pig on pasture Pastured Pork is now available from Plow Creek Farm

Many of you may not know that in addition to the fruits and vegetables we raise here at Plow Creek we also raise pastured pork. What is pastured pork you say? Unlike commercially raised pork which spend their whole lives in indoor confinement our hogs spend their days foraging, rooting, wallowing, and expressing all their natural behaviors. In other words, we raise happy hogs. Not only is raising hogs outdoors more humane, it also produces superior pork which you just can not find in the grocery store. If you have never had heritage breed pork (our sows are Berkshire hogs) that is raised on pasture you are in for a treat. We sell our pork by the whole hog, 1/2 hog, or as a 25 pound pastured pork sampler package. The sampler package gives you a taste of the various cuts of the hog and is a good option if you don’t have a deep freezer. If you have a deep freezer or friends interested in splitting a hog with you buying a 1/2 or whole hog is the way to go as you save money that way. Now is the time to reserve your pork which is going to the meat locker in just a couple weeks. For more information you can visit our website at http://plowcreek.org/farm/pork.htm or contact Matthew at peterson@plowcreek.org.

    I am interested in whole hog pricing. Also can I come p/u hog myself or must it go thru your butcher? Thanks, Brian
