Stonekreek Farms raises pork for direct to consumer. Pigs are brought in to our farm as weaner pigs (~50lbs). Our pigs are raised indoors for biosecurity purposes; we want to keep our piggies healthy! They are placed in groups of 5-6 and get a straw bed. This is especially important when they first arrive as they get chilled easily. It also provides the pigs with an opportunity to play and root as they naturally would.
They are fed a complete pellet which provides them with all the energy, protein, minerals and vitamins to grow. They also receive a All-Bite block, a molasses-based block allowing pigs to exhibit foraging behaviours and bite and chew on the block instead of their pen-mates. Pigs also of course have free access to water.
Pigs finished once they reach ~240lbs. Pigs are butchered locally and sold as 1/2 or whole pork as well as individual cuts at our on-farm store. For current availability, please see www.stonekreekfarms.ca/fresh-from-the-farm.html
