WHAT WE FARM

Our Pigs, Birds, and Trees

MANGALITSA PIGS

Hungary's Woolly Pig

The mangalitsa originated in Hungary, the result of crosses between domestic pigs and wild boars. They are the only pigs to have long curly hair. Their meat is just as unique; they have extremely high fat contents, but this fat is low in cholesterol. Mangalitsas grow very slowly, but their dark meat and creamy lard is prized for charcuterie. Mangalica sausage is listed on the Slow Food Hungary's Ark of Taste.

MULEFOOT PIGS

An American Treasure

The mulefoot breed -- so named because of their fused hooves -- was developed in the southern US from Spanish stock. These pigs are known for their meat and fat, particularly their hams. They are listed as Critically Endangered by the Livestock Conservancy and is on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.

ICELANDIC CHICKENS

Ancient Chickens of the Vikings

Icelandic chickens are a landrace, descended from chickens the Vikings brought when they settled Iceland almost 1000 years ago. These chickens retain a unique genetic heritage lost in many modern breeds of chickens. They are hardy and independent, preferring to forage for food than to eat feed. They are small bodied with excellent meat, and lay medium sized eggs. The Livestock Conservancy lists them as a Threatened breed.

AMERICAN BRESSE CHICKEN

France's Treasured Meat Bird

The Bresse Gauloise breed originated in Eastern France, where it is considered one of the world's best tasting chickens. The white breed, when raised in the Bresse region of France according to strict standards, has appellation d'origine controlée status. This breed has only been available in the US for 10-15 years. Their red wattles and combs, white feathers, and slate blue legs mirror the colors of the French flag.

TREESPLEASE

In 2018, we planted almost 500 trees belonging to a variety of native fruit and nut species. Not only will these trees become a food forest for our pigs, once they start producing, we will offer our customers an assortment of chestnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, persimmons, berries, and more!
