At Pink House Farm we raise purebred Tamworth pigs on pasture. Tamworth is an old heritage breed that is long and lean and manages quite well living off the land with minimal help, (interference) from the farmer. Our pigs are free to graze in fields of clover and orchard grass, snooze in the shade of the woods, root, (nothing short of concrete stops them, and we have none of that) and just do what pigs do naturally. No growth hormones or routine antibiotics are used.
Pigs are available as breeding stock, feeder pigs, (weaned piglets) or whole hogs for barbecues or your freezer etc. You may pick them up directly from the farm, or we can deliver them to the butcher to be custom processed into the cuts you want.
We also have a variety of pork cuts and sausages available. You can buy them directly from us at the farm and through the Patchwork Farms Co-Op year round, or at the Mineral Farmers Market from May through October.
We have now expanded to raise and sell chickens for meat and eggs. We raise the Red Ranger chickens in a free range pastured manner. They have a house for shelter at night, and are free to roam all day within an electric netting enclosed pasture. The house and pasture are moved regularly to keep them on fresh grass. Chickens are processed by us on the farm, and our whole chickens and eggs are available at all the same locations as our pork.
We love to show off our beautiful red pigs and chickens; so give us a call if you’d like to come see the farm. We’ll be happy to show you around.
