Treated With Care

Treated With CareEating meat is a privilege. We respect and appreciate the animals that provide us with food, and we treat them accordingly. We do everything we can to ensure that our pigs are as comfortable as possible. This level of care limits the size of our farm, but we would not have it any other way.

We will not allow an animal to suffer needlessly. If a pig becomes ill and an antibiotic is recommended by a veterinarian to treat a specific problem, we will use it. This is a rare occurrence, as our pigs live in a healthy, clean environment where they can engage in natural behavior. We allow plenty of time—far exceeding the period required by law—for the antibiotic to leave the pig’s system.

Factory farms constantly administer large doses of sub-therapeutic antibiotics to all of their pigs by mixing it into the daily feed.
