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 (more information about our non-GMO feed here). 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.
