Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. A cooperative of small family farmers dedicated to traditional methods raising old-breed hogs with completely traceable breeding lines.
The majority of the farms are sustainable “circle farms” that raise and grind their own feed for the pigs, which is a 100% vegetarian grain feed consisting of corn, soybeans and rolled oats. Families of pigs are left together and their indoor spaces offer at least 15 square feet of space per animal, and sows are never put in gestation crates.
The cooperative is strict about banning the use of antibiotics and hormones on each farm and limiting the number of hogs the farms raise and each farm is third-party audited for animal welfare.
