While Elmwood Stock Farm has long been known for its organic, grass-fed beef and produce—and, more recently, for organic, grass-fed lamb and pasture-raised chicken and turkey—organic pork is something new. In the spring of 2016, we began rotating a group of organic hogs through our pastures and watched, waited and cared for them with anticipation. Raising pigs was a new venture for us, and we knew that doing so organically would be challenging. Why else would so few local farms be offering organic, pasture-raised pork? We’re happy with our first year as outdoor-hog farmers and pleased with the benefits the pigs are offering to our holistic farm system. We are also pleased to be able to offer this pork to you.
Under USDA certified-organic regulations, our pigs are kept on organic pastures, which are never treated with synthetic, chemical fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. In fact, the only fertilizers our pastures are ever treated with are those that come directly from our animals. The pigs are given room to roam, root in the dirt for tasty snacks and build mud holes. They are fed a ration of organic grains—which are non-GMO—and minerals and are offered an unlimited supply of drinking water. Organic pigs are never treated with antibiotics, growth promotants or chemical dewormers.
We currently have a limited amount of pork available. We are offering this for sale by pre-order only. We are not able to sell pork directly at most of our farmers markets at this time, but we are happy to bring your order with us for you to pick up there. You may also pick up your order from us on the farm, if you schedule a time with us; and we can deliver your order to your home or office in Fayette or Scott County for a $7 delivery fee. Use the contact form below to place your order at least 48 hours before pickup.
