At Happy Critters Farm, we raise our pigs on pastures that include both grass and forest land so they can fully express their piggy-ness. The pigs are rotated through a series of pastures to keep them on green grass and to prevent excessive disturbance to the soil. They also receive non-GMO feed that is made from locally (within 100 miles) grown grains, and eat it at their leisure. Our pigs are encouraged to play in the mud and rut up as many roots as possible; we give them the opportunities to be the best pigs they can be.
We practice low stress management, because stress-free, happy pigs taste better. The pigs do not receive hormones or antibiotics, but instead grow at the rate nature intended. We believe that a successful pig is just that: a pig.
