Our pigs play a huge role on Sweet Grass Pastures. They help the soil "breathe" by digging and moving the earth. Every few weeks they are moved from paddock to paddock with the use of electrified fencing. They are provided free-choice access to NON-GMO grain and water. We love to allow them to root and wallow as they please. Our pigs get to be in the sunshine everyday and enjoy everything about what it is to be a pig.
In the beginning our hogs will be in limited supply and are grown to order. Normally they will be ready for slaughter six to eight months when they will be fully matured. Sometimes, purchasing a whole hog can seem pretty intimidating and we understand that everyone does not have the appropriate space to store an entire hog. If you are interested in purchasing a smaller share contact us and we can discuss ways to make it managable.
