We are a pasture centered, Family run Farrow to Finish, 100% Berkshire Pig operation in Akron, Colorado.
By being pasture centered, our Berks are able to enjoy the fresh outdoors, 365 days a year as nature intended. They constantly wander around their paddocks where they have access year round to a creek, shade from trees and Port-A-Hut shelters if they so desire.
Every six months we rotate our Berks on different paddocks throughout our 160 acres of Pasture/Cropland where they get a variety of grasses, wheat, barley, rye, clover, and chicory that we plant. We supplement their pasture diet daily with a few lbs. of a corn & soybean based feed that has been specially formulated by a swine nutritionist.
We are proud to say that we are 100% drug free, meaning no antibiotics, hormones, steroids, NO DRUGS of any kind. Instead, we use a natural preventative powder as a daily feed additive called ropadiar. It consists of high food grade Diatomaceous Earth and Oregano Oil.

We currently run 60 sows that are treated with the up most respect. We have a farrowing building where they go about 1-2 weeks prior to farrowing. This allows them to nest and birth their babies in a large comfortable, safe area. Unlike most operations, we PROHIBIT gestation stalls, farrowing crates, and tethering.
Our mommas and their babies are free to roam either indoors or outdoors as they please at all times.
By doing this we are able to raise and maintain Happy, Healthy, Stress Free Animals in their Natural Environment!!!
