At Greyledge Farm, we raise a mix of both modern and heritage breeds of hogs – Duroc Spotted Pigs, Yorkshires, Landrace, Black Pigs and Berkshires. The animals are pasture-raised and rotationally grazed with regular access to fresh grass, roots, water, sun and lots of dirt. They are fed no antibiotics, steroids or hormones. In other words, they are raised with kindness and care the way pigs were in days gone by.
The result of this humane, sustainable approach to raising farm animals is a better product. Studies have shown that stress from crowded, hostile conditions, overheating and lack of air can reduce the meat’s juiciness. Hogs raised at Greyledge Farm produce meat that is tender, moist and full of flavor.
We process our pork with the same attention to detail, using a modern USDA-supervised facility. A local, third-generation German smokehouse takes an artisanal approach to making our country-style, hickory-smoked bacon, sausages and hot dogs – hand-tying every link. Our combination beef/pork hotdogs contain no nitrates or cereal fillers.
