Pastured Pigs: Behind the Scenes on Rodrick & Jeanette's Amen Acres Farm

January 6, 2022

Good morning!

Winter set in for real on the farm last week. We got our first big snow and now the pigs are snuggling deep in their straw bedding. 

But just a few weeks ago it was different.

The sun was warm, the grass was lush, and I had the perfect opportunity to do a photo/video shoot with the pastured pigs on Rodrick & Jeanette's rescued Amen Acres Farm.

Here's a quick video I shot to show how they love tearing into new grass. Listen carefully and you'll hear them munching away!


Below are my favorite pictures to help tell the "pig heaven" story. ;)

Rodrick's son, Andre, inspecting the pig's shovel nose. God obviously designed these animals for digging... Look at the ground they got piled up there!

Rooting for acorns... "First come first serve. You better hurry up!"

No matter how much grass a pig has, he will always be attracted to mud. If he doesn't roll in it he'll at least stick his nose in a bit! :)

Pastured Pigs and Grass-fed Beef fill an important role in restoring health to the soil on Rodrick & Jeanette's Amen Acres Farm.

With your support, we are turning this run-down-farm into a thriving example of regenerative agriculture.

Thanks so much for your help!

In turn, we'll bring you clean, nutrient-dense foods so your family can eat with confidence at every meal.

All the best,

Wesley

God Designed it. We Respect it. That Explains it!

Many people are fooled by Industrial Organics in the supermarkets. On our farm, we grow high integrity foods you can trust.
