California Kurobuta - Berkshire Pork

Our farm is on 16 acres with lakes and ponds. We use organic practices because our family eats this food. Our other business, Soils To Grow LLC, makes compost and wonderful soil blends, but doesn't use much acreage. Raising heritage Berkshire pork seemed to be a great fit. Exquisitely marbled and tasty meat! No hormones, no medications. Just the GOOD STUFF! They have never had a commercial ration or grain corn.

Our pigs live a wonderful life roaming around acreage and enjoying a swim in the lake. We raise tubers and veggies in the fields and let the pigs harvest for themselves. With the supplementation of dairy, scotch grains, pasta, organic flour products, olive oil, veggies, fruits, and nuts.

Our herds of pigs are all very calm. We handle and work amongst them so they have a good relationship with us. Happy contented pigs make for good food. Join with us and taste good well tended pork, the way they should all be raised. No farrow cages, crates etc. Our sows farrow in the forest areas and live with the rest of the herd. They are like a big family working together.

Our farm does not yet have farm tours set up. Since we have many sows with piglets we have to be really careful with visitors who might have a cold or be unwell. Pigs are very susceptible to human illnesses and sick pigs are not happy pigs. We have been considering an internship and would be open to suggestions.

Listing last updated on Jan 5, 2015

Kurobuta is the Japanese name for Berkshire pigs. Our pork is locally processed, cut, cured and wrapped. We sell whole pigs, sides, and will soon have a CSA so that those with apartment sized freezer space can still enjoy good food and get a subscription of good meat. We do USDA processing upon request. Enjoy meat that was raised right and food that tastes wonderful!

San Juan Bautista Ca. Time to be determined. Once a month or once every other month.

USDA whole or sides or primal cuts of pork, delivered to your market/restaurant. At this time we do not have individual cuts of meat. So if you wanted enough ribs for 300 people then we would have to come up with a solution at that time. Boxes of cuts would be about 25-30 pounds with a variety of cuts and cured meat.
