Pastured pork comes from pigs that live how pigs might live if left to their own devices: in fields, free to move around. They have small shelters where they can sleep in small groups. Pastured pigs receive feed in addition to the food they root for themselves. Since they aren't crowded together in unhealthy conditions, pastured pigs do not receive unnecessary antibiotics.
Quite a bit goes into raising pastured pork. It requires more work than just letting pigs run free in a field.
-The meat often has deeper, richer, or more complex flavor than factory-farmed meat does.
-For many people, knowing that the animals they eat were raised humanely is important, as is the lessened use of antibiotics.
-Pastured and grass-fed animals tend to have a more positive impact on the environment.
Our ideal pig grows well, has a large mature weight, enthusiastically forages, has a calm temperament, and produces superior pork. Most modern factory pigs have been selected solely for the fastest production of the leanest possible meat on a diet of corn and soy. They are fragile, aggressive, and easily stressed, this does not make for great meat!
