Grass, Grub, and No-Drug Pork
We are happy to announce that our pasture raised pigs this year are thriving on our lush pastures.
Each year, we try to raise cleaner and cleaner pork.
Having refined the process in years past, we offer these two options:
1) Burkes Garden Pasture Raised non-GMO Supplemented Pork:
These pigs are pasture raised at Burkes Garden Farm and eat 90% of their diet of bugs, grass, roots, grubs, and earthworms. They roam 500 acres with access to clean highland air, water and sunshine.
In addition to what they root for, they are supplemented a GMO-free, chemical-free feed that contains corn, soybeans, small grains (oats), and minerals.
2) Lancaster Whey Fed Pork:
These pigs are barn-raised with free access to outdoors. They have plenty of room to run around, explore, make mud puddles, and root for anything they can dig up with their snouts.
They are fed organic oats, soaked in raw skim milk and whey from cheese making, with the addition of a little heirloom corn and lots of organic table scraps.
These are some very happy pigs!
All of our pigs are free of antibiotics, hormones, vaccines, and GMOs.
We don’t buy in pigs as we breed them ourselves on the farm so we have several generations of chemical free, GMO-free pig stock and we keep getting cleaner each generation.
We’ve created our own Burke’s Garden Farm breed from a variety of standard breeds that have adapted to our pastures and feeding routines.
They are hardy, fat and happy!
Living on alfalfa, blue grass, orchard grass, clover, burdock, herbs, wildflowers, turnips, grubs, bugs, and earthworms, with free-access to clean spring water and high-altitude air and climate, they produce the most nutritious pork.
When it rains, you can find them rolling in the mud puddles.
Lastly, our pig butcher does not process using nitrates, nitrites, preservatives, MSG, or chlorine bleach cleaners, rather washes in certified-for-organic non-GMO citric and lactic acid.
Our sausages are wrapped in both natural pork collagen or pork intestine casings.
So, if you are looking for a healthy option for your family, for the pigs, and for the planet, you are in the right place.
This is the way pigs were meant to live and you can taste the difference!
Right now we have on sale, our Whey-fed and Burke’s Garden Ground Pork, Sage Country Sausages, and Pork Ribs. You can save even more purchasing in 5#, 10#, 20#, and 40# bundles.
Connecting Food & Health,
The Simply Grassfed families
