At Wheelbarrow Farm we raise our pigs on semi-forested pasture land. As opposed to conventional confinement operations, pasture allows the animals to move about freely, graze and dig for food and benefit from sunshine and fresh air.
We raise a Berkshire heritage breed that is healthier and more flavourful than the pigs raised in factories today. Raising a healthier breed means we don't rely on medication or antibiotics. The Berkshire is known for it's intermuscular fat ('marbling') which infuses the meat with extra pork flavour.
