Our primary farm product is naturally grown pastured pork which we raise sustainably free-ranging out on our mountain pastures. This is not some marketing buzz. The pigs are out there rotationally grazing the grasses, clovers, alfalfa and other tasty forage along with our chickens and other animals. In addition to pasture in the warm seasons and hay in the winter we feed whey, milk, cream and such from a local dairy as well as vegetables we grow like pumpkins and such. See our blog for lots of articles with pictures about how we raise our pigs. It’s a virtual farm tour all year round.

We primarily source pigs from our own genetic lines which we have been selectively breeding since 2003. These include Yorkshire, Berkshire, Large Black, Tamworth and a few others in addition to our primary cross lines such as Mainline and Blackieline. See the Pig Page for more details about our lines and the Breeders Page as well. Some people like to pick a particular genetic line and that option is available, we occasionally buy pigs from other farms. You can select one of the Sugar Mountain Farm (SMF) lines in the Genetics options on the whole pig order form at a small additional cost. Picking genetics may delay orders as that means a smaller pool of pigs to pick from each week. Otherwise pig is farmer’s pick at no surcharge.
