2022 is Moonlight Ranch’s first year raising pork!
Our beautiful little piggies are helping restore the new ranch property by acting as natural tillers in the more neglected areas of the farm. This year, they’re moving along the blackberry bushes surrounding Norris Creek to open up the soil and allow the native grasses, legumes, and forbs to move back in. While they’re at it, they get to supplement their diet of Modesto Milling’s Organic Hog Grower with, you guessed it, blackberries, along with any other naturally occurring forages they desire.
The pigs get to enjoy their own stretch of paradise, basking by the creek, while we get to enjoy their antics and robust personalities.
As with beef and lamb, we harvest pork, after the animals have gotten the full spring and summer seasons to forage all that the farm has to offer.
2022 pork harvest will take place in October. Contact us now to secure your portion for pick up in the fall for $8/lb hanging weight plus butcher fees.
Pork is sold “on the hoof” in whole or half portions, with the average hog coming in around 150-250lbs.
