At Red Pond Farm we believe that how our animals live is a critical component to the value of protein products we provide. Our purebred Gloucestershire Old Spot hogs are naturally farrowed on pasture and ethically raised in the forested areas of our 33 acre North Carolina farm.
Unlike factory farms where hogs live on concrete-slabbed, tightly confined, warehouse-like buildings, we raise our Gloucestershire Old Spots in a natural environment that benefits the pig, the earth, and you. The forest temperatures are significantly less than on pasture and the cool environment provides a place where the hogs can forage in the woods for grubs, acorns, and their favorite roots.
In addition to the abundance of nuts and fruit foraged from the forest floor, we supplement our hogs with a ration of locally sourced clean feed. Rotating our Gloucestershire Old Spots through the woods into new paddocks every two weeks keeps our hogs stimulated, healthy, happy, and reduces the stress on our ecosystem.
We present the very best proteins that we can produce to our USDA inspected processors and believe that there is no comparison in the texture, taste, and nutrient density to commercial “grocery store” pork.
Information on purchasing whole and half hogs is below; however, we know that there are always more questions than we can possibly cover here. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Mike directly at 704-729-4779 or 980-298-1000.
