What's the big deal with Pastured Pork?
January 14, 2022
The big deal is that most pigs spend their lives packed in huge CAFO confinement barns.
They eat chemical-farmed GMO feeds laden with antibiotics and artificial growth stimulants. They don't even know what grass is.
Take a look at CAFO Pigs vs. our Pastured Pigs and notice the stark contrast in their environment.
You see why this is a big deal?
Pastured Pigs thrive outside in nature with plenty of open space, fresh air, and bright sunshine the way God created them to live.
On our farm they eat a wide variety of pasture grasses, acorns, roots, leaves or grubs.
You should see them tearing into the grass when we give them a new section... They really do graze! Check out the video / photo shoot I shared last week from Rodrick's Amen Acres Farm.
But remember, pigs are omnivores who need grain in their diet... They're not like a grass-eating-herbivore-cow with four stomachs. The grain our pigs eat is always Chemical-Free, GMO-Free, and Soy-Free so you end up with the cleanest pork possible.
Our Chemical-Free diet is extremely important since even many of the good pastured pig farmers don't use organic feed. Most farmers use GMO-Free grains... and that is good... But GMO-free does not keep the soil or crop from being sprayed with chemicals!
Know your farmer and ask him questions.
So while your choice of Pastured Pork supports humane animal treatment and regenerative farming, it also gives your family super nutritious pork to eat with confidence.
Studies show that Pastured Pork has 3-4x more omega-3s, 74% more selenium, and roughly 2x more vitamin D & E compared to regular factory farmed pork.
Those are some very impressive numbers.
Omega-3s help improve brain and heart health while fighting cancer, depression, and Alzheimer's disease... Check out all 17 Omega-3 benefits for yourself. You want as many of these Omega-3s in your diet as possible!
Selenium is also very important. This antioxidant keeps free radicals in check, fights oxidative stress, and defends against chronic conditions like heart disease and cancer. Selenium also helps keep your thyroid healthy so it can properly produce hormones and control your metabolism.
Many Americans are deficient in vitamin D. This is an essential nutrient for your immune system to function well. Your body also requires Vitamin D so it can absorb calcium and phosphorus to build strong bones.
Vitamin E can improve vision and brain health. It's an antioxidant that pares especially well with selenium to bring out the best in each of them. Pretty amazing that Pastured Pork has both! :)
Maybe it seems like Pastured Pork is almost too good to be true...
But why shouldn't it be remarkably better than CAFO Pork? God created animals to be raised outdoors with plenty of fresh grass and sunshine!
When we follow God's plan, the result is always high quality, nutrient-dense foods your family can trust.
We are committed to raising our Pastured Pigs with zero antibiotics or artificial growth hormones.
The pastures and grains are always Chemical-Free, GMO-Free and Soy-Free so you get the cleanest pork possible.
All our pigs are humanely raised and then respectfully harvested at our own USDA butcher shop.
Thank-you for choosing nutrient-dense Pastured Pork.
All the best,
~5th generation on the farm
