Heritage Pasture Raised Pork

This pork is raised by Abby, our daughter, and her husband Ethan right here on Alderspring’s pastures. Here's their protocol: 

  • Free choice pasture. These pigs are raised on grass pastures from weanling stage to finish, moved to a new paddock every week (yes, pigs that don’t live in mud)!
  • Fed corn and soy-free feed. Along with Alderspring diverse grasses, Abby and Ethan’s pigs enjoy a supplemental diet of local barley, red wheat, and untreated sugar snap peas.
  • Processed in a small USDA facility. These pigs are humanely processed at the same small-scale artisanal facility that processes Alderspring beef.
  • Heritage pork. These are heritage genetics that produce better flavor and have more desire to graze.
  • Leave no trace portability. Our entire pig operation is moved frequently, so it’s completely portable and leaves no trace except for increased soil fertility and slightly pig-tilled earth.
  • Completely traceable. You can rest assured that your pastured pork was raised here, on our Idaho ranch, by Abby and Ethan Kelly. Each pack of pork is traceable to a single animal.
