We are a family farm, operating since 1980, providing Heritage pork, piglets, chicken, and duck. We’re building towards sustainability through diversity, taking the innovations of today alongside ideas of the past.
At Burnshirt Valley Farm, our own Free Range Heritage Breed Pork and piglets are rotationally grazed for the mutual benefit of pigs and pasture. We keep our own breeding stock, a heritage Tamworth boar, two Tamworth sows, and one China sow, which ensures the availability of healthy piglets.
From day one, the piglets are able to roam the entire farm, foraging for grass, nuts, and bugs. At eight weeks, they are weaned from the sow and moved to separate housing in large pens. The pens are moved once the ground has been thoroughly disturbed, bringing rocks to the surface and removing brush and other less desirable plants. The pigs are moved in this fashion until they reach market weight. We feed our pigs Poulin grain, which provides the bulk of their feed. They’re supplemented with local hay for additional winter forage.
