The pigs at East Forty Farm are heritage breed crosses. The sows are Gloucester Old Spot/Tamworth (Jig, Jog and Ginger), and the boar is a Large Black (Arlo). They were selected for their ability to live in the forest year round, grazing on the diverse bounty of the land; eating vegetable compost from local farms, supplemented with grain to balance nutritional needs; and drinking whey from the production of Lakin’s Gorges Cheese. This is a closed herd since 2015.
The pigs are helping to reclaim pasture by rooting up brush. They will eventually be rotationally grazed through 10 acres of the forest, along with our other livestock.
Stop in the Farm Store for delicious pork chops, ribs, bacon, as well as house made pate and sausage.. Twice a year we take orders for whole and half pigs.
We breed muscovy ducks for meat and they are harvested in November.
