And o' lardy, is it delicious.
Most pigs in this country are raised in CAFO’s - concentrated animal feeding operations.
"The worst thing I ever smelled was the inside of a pig that had been raised in confinement in a factory farm," said Jamie.
Those pigs have been breathing in manure their entire lives.
So it's in their meat and the smell is noxious and always there, even when you take it out of the freezer and cook it months later.
Our pigs are healthy, happy animals that live most days of their lives on pasture or in woodlands.
Their diet is supplemented with non-GMO grains.
They are NOT given daily antibiotics and hormones to increase their growth rate, as is done to confinement pigs.
So they take longer to raise and are smaller.
But the meat is SO MUCH BETTER for you, and the air quality of Iowa!
When you order this special pork cut for your family, you are doing more than just creating a good meal and getting good nutrition.
You are supporting a small family farm and the ethos that goes with that: animals raised in the most humane and healthy manner for them, us and the planet.
Our pigs are pasture-raised, supplemented on non GMO grains, and never given antibiotics and hormones.
They're happy pigs and the meat smells clean and fresh!
