Birkshires are a heritage breed of pig, black in colour with white modeling throughout. The pigs are mainly raised in pastures and are known to forage.
Recently the Birkshire has been seen on menus and at high-end butcher shops, the meat is a darker red and marbled throughout. The taste is very flavourful, meat is more dense and they are referred to as "the Black Angus" of pork.
The 6 pigs are enjoying life in the barn on a bed of straw. We are supplmenting their all grain diet with our high quality 3rd cut hay.
We are now taking orders for pork. If you are interested or would like more information, then contact us.
