Pasture & Forest-Raised
Visitors to our farm are often surprised to see pigs in the woods! All of our pigs live on pasture for a few months and then we rotate them in the forest in the last third of their life. Forests are a goldmine of edible goodies, which makes them very happy and adds complexity and depth of flavor to our pork. Pigs are naturally adapted to forest living, though few farms utilize wooded areas as foraging habitats for their pigs. This is why you will often hear us proudly referring to J&L Green Farm pork as "forested"!
