We raise Berkshire pigs, lauded as restaurant-quality pork. In fact, there have been numerous taste tests, studies and general research done on Berkshire pigs. They all say that Berkshire pork is genetically predisposed to produce the finest quality pork due to its shorter muscle fibers and lots of marbling, which contributes to both the flavor and the tenderness. They also say that the reason Berkshire pork is so juicy and tender is the lack of stress on the animal. Stress causes the meat to be dry and tough. Our pigs are pasture-raised, coming and going from their shelter as they please. Their diet consists of grass, roots, grains, and frequent yummy treats!
