Grand View Farm
"If pigs were given snouts to root, so why would we put them on concrete floors or place rings in their noses? Want to know a dirty secret about how we raise clean pork at GVF? ... We let the pigs get dirty! There are so many advantages to having pigs on pasture, besides the obvious fact that it is their natural habitat. All of the microorganisms in the dirt, all of the nutrients and minerals from the roots and legumes, and all of the fresh air and sunlight combine to provide a respectable life for this wonderful animal as well as the most nutrient dense pork you will ever eat.
We make a great distinction between the term “free range” as opposed to our pastured products, simply emphasizing the daily rotation of the animals in a symbiotic and natural sequence. Our cattle are rotated ahead of the chickens, which clean up after the cattle before the ground rests for an extended period of time. The pigs are rotated through the wooded areas and pastures in a similar manner. The cattle are 100% grass fed; while the chickens and pigs have access to free choice non-GMO grain rations to supplement their pasture diet.
This rotation and multi-speciation confuses pathogens and provides a platform that allows us to grow animals without the use of any type of medications, hormones or antibiotics. Our chicken is culled here on the farm in an open-air processing facility far cleaner than any indoor facility."
