We used to be one of a few Pacific Northwest breeders of registered Hereford Hogs, once a heritage breed that has its beginnings in the USA. Herefords are noted for their red bodies with white faces, white legs and docile temperament. For more information about the breed please visit The Livestock Conservancy. However when the National Hereford Hog Association allowed outside genetics to create 'show' pigs and make that their focus, we decided to refocus our direction to heritage crosses. Currently we are crossing Hereford, Large Black, and Berkshire. Our goal is to create meat pigs balancing the lean content of the Herefords with the fat content than the Large Blacks and the marbling characteristics of the Berkshire.
We do not sell cuts of pork, the USDA processing fees would prohibit pricing our pork competitively with the supermarkets.
We do offer weaner pigs, these are seven to eight weeks old and you raise them to breed or butcher.
We also offer contract raising for those who don't have time or space to keep a pig. You purchase the weaner and we'll raise it for you. You decide when to harvest and which custom cutter to use, or do it yourself.
We also have, on occasion, a butcher hog or roaster available.
