"Sell Premium Pork From Raising Pigs on Pasture"

Raising pigs on pasture is a great business for the small land owner! With the right system, there is minimum overhead, low labor requirements, and no long-term commitment.

Raising weaner pigs on pasture to finish weight offers a great opportunity for a small farmer to diversify farm income without a huge investment in facilities or time.

At New Terra Farm we have been raising piggies this way for 10 years. We have raised tons of premium pork for our freezer and our farm customers.

We use our piggies to renovate pasture, prepare land for planting, and for fall cleanup in our market garden. Pigs are multi-purpose farm livestock, once you have a system to handle them.

The pork produced from pastured pigs is a premium product; we easily sell all we can raise to our CSA customers, at a price we set to guarantee a profit. Once people get a sample of what REAL pork tastes like, they will come back year after year.
