Pigs are simply amazing creatures to observe as they use their large plow-like snouts to forage. The old saying is true, pigs will eat anything! Acorns, berries, grass, roots, vegetable scraps, and even bugs and grubs.
To take advantage of this amazing foraging behavior, we run our pigs through partially wooded, partially pasture paddocks. This allows them to take advantage of all the food sources found within these paddocks, moving them to a fresh paddock weekly. They do have access to non-GMO
Our pigs spend their lives outside in the fresh air and sunshine, able to use their plow like snout to dig for roots and acorns to their heart’s delight! This is greatly contrasted by conventional pigs, where they are kept on concrete and metal grates in confinement buildings, where they never have access to fresh air or open space.
