Just launched a kickstarter campaign to raise money to fund scientific research around the nutritional break down of fodder at various stages of growth for our book on Fodder. Please check it out!

We are raising a breed of pig known as Red Wattles. This breed was originally created right here in Texas! This particular breed is known for very tasty red meat. Even better when it is grass fed and pasture raised.

From the blog

Our pigs are raised in small number herds. They are raised in 1/2 acre paddocks and rotated to new pasture grounds every 7-10 days. This gives them enough opportunity to clear out all the grasses and legumes that they are interested in. It also gives them quite the opportunity to get around and play.

Pigs are considered the 4th smartest animal on this planet (chimp, dolphin, elephant, then pig). As such they are very social, inquisitive, playful, animals. You will often see them chasing each other with the lead pig having a stick or something "fun" in its mouth. They are very friendly and love to come greet their human pals. Especially at snack time.

Come meet the pigs!

We would love to have you out to meet the pigs. Our farm has no secrets and in fact would love to tell you anything you are interested in learning. Schedule a tour with us and meet the farm family!
