This is your last chance to get a half or whole hog from Filbert Acres in 2013!
"We couldn't be any more pleased," said one August customer of a half. He went on to say, as several have said, that he would love to promote our pork by giving away a chop or two, but he's finding himself uncharacteristically selfish on that score. . .
Hog Heaven @ Filbert Acres
Raising animals well, means respecting an animal's nature. Warehouses are not the right place for any animal, least of all an intelligent playful creature like a pig. We're committed to providing quality meat through quality animal husbandry. To us, that means organic feed and a regular pasture rotation that allows the pigs to run, wallow, eat pasture, dig, and avoid their own poo. This batch has been finish on hundred of pounds of apples and hazelnuts!
Is it Expensive?
Factory-farmed pork may seem cheap, but the costs are hidden. Some costs are externalized: farmers trapped in debt, farm workers in dangerous health conditions, pigs suffering in confinement, super-germs created by sub-therapeutic antibiotics, environmental issues with concentrated effluent. Other costs are found right in the factory pork and transferred to the consumer: lower quality, residual hormones, unknown effects of GMOs, reduced Omega-3 and unquantified effects on consumer health.
This batch has an exceptional variety of weights--you can choose smaller or larger halves or wholes. (Halves available: 77lb, 95lb, 112lb) (Wholes available: 147lb, 189lb, 238lb). Email us for availability, pricing, and logistics.
