*** WE ARE NOT CURRENTLY RAISING HOGS UNTIL WE CAN UPGRADE OUR FACILITIES ***
(We may have pork available fall 2016)
Despite our business name, beef is not our only product. Generations of farmers have recognized small-scale hog production as an efficient and profitable use of space, labor, equipment, and home-grown feed. Pigs are much more content when they are allowed the space and freedom to express their instinctive behaviors such as rooting and wallowing. Lowered stress equals improved pig health, reducing the need for antibiotics. Although we will never raise as much pork on our land as we could with a hog confinement, we feel a small-scale, “old-fashioned” hog farm will produce the flavorful, high-quality meat that we ourselves desire. We raise hogs from hardy breeds that are intended for outdoor production and are known for their excellent flavor.
If you have never eaten anything but commodity pork, you don’t know what you’re missing. We invite you to try some Troublesome Creek Cattle Co. pork and taste the difference! – D.S.
