We are raising a breed of pig known as Red Wattles. This breed was originally created right here in Texas! This particular breed is known for very tasty red meat. Even better when it is grass fed and pasture raised.
Our pigs are raised in small number herds. They are raised in 1/2 acre paddocks and rotated to new pasture grounds every 7-10 days. This gives them enough opportunity to clear out all the grasses and legumes that they are interested in. It also gives them quite the opportunity to get around and play.
Pigs are considered the 4th smartest animal on this planet (chimp, dolphin, elephant, then pig). As such they are very social, inquisitive, playful, animals. You will often see them chasing each other with the lead pig having a stick or something "fun" in its mouth. They are very friendly and love to come greet their human pals. Especially at snack time.
