Our Heritage Tamworth Hogs
Our Tamworth Hogs are pure-bred from championship bloodlines. All our breeding stock is registered to the American Tamworth Association. Tamworth's are one of the oldest and most physically active breed of hogs in the world and are nicknamed "Irish Grazers." They can get up to 80 percent of their protein from grass, making them excellent grassfed, free-range hogs. Our hogs are born in the wild, not in farrowing crates. We rarely see a piglet for the first three weeks because the mother will keep them hidden in the woods.
What we feed our hogs:
We grow our own all natural heirloom corn with no pesticides or weed killers. Then we'll grind our corn and mix it with soy meal and natural minerals to feed our hogs. We try to grow enough corn to feed our hogs all year long. But when we do buy feed, we strictly use all natural feed with no antibiotics.
Our hogs roam free:
We plant multiple fields for our hogs to graze on. Typically, we'll plant oats and clover for the winter, and sudan grass and pearl millet for the summer; and, we supplement their natural diet with all natural feed
Our hogs drink from artesian springs.
Our farm was named after Big Creek which is fed by hundreds of artesian springs. Big Creek roams through the entire farm. Our hogs drink from the many artesian springs that feed the creek.
