Our philosophy and methods

We practice stewardship of the land and compassionate husbandry. We strive to provide our hogs with an environment that matches their natural behavior, which includes rooting, wallowing, and ranging freely. Our hogs are never confined indoors; instead they live in large grassy paddocks. Run-in sheds provide shelter from the elements. In summer, our hogs cool off in large bogs that fill with rain water. We practice intensive rotational grazing to insure the hogs have access to grass year round. Our hogs enjoy a diet of locally-milled feed, free of antibiotics and growth hormones. Through the Austin Zero Waste Initiative, we’ve partnered with Threadgills Restaurant to provide the hogs with fresh produce that supplements their milled diet.

We stand in opposition to confined animal feeding operations (CAFO’s) and actively support fellow local farmers and businesses.
