2019 Update: Please note that we are no longer breeding pigs. Next season we will be purchasing Certified Organic feeder pigs from a neighboring farm and raising a very limited amount of pork.
On Kingbird Farm our pigs are raised free-range on pasture in the summer and in deep-bedded outdoor pens in the winter. They are fed exclusively certified organic grains and alfalfa hay and grazed on certified organic pastures.
At market size we take our market hogs to a certified organic butcher. They are handled and processed with care. Fresh cuts are wrapped and frozen to our specifications for quick delivery to market. Hams and bacon are brined without nitrates and traditionally smoked.
Available at the Ithaca Farmers’ Market and on the farm.
