Our first priority is animal welfare. Our animals are raised outdoors. The pigs spend their day wandering through the pasture, rooting up everything and anything they can find (old tools, chairs, harness parts, horse shoes, a 9 iron, etc.) When they want to nap, they flop under a tree. They dig mud holes and wallow when it's hot or the insects bother them. They interact naturally in their social groups. The chickens are free to give themselves dust baths, they scratch for bugs and seeds, they eat grass, and have a lot of hiding spots and roosts where they spend their day. We never feed junk like industrial food scraps, used cooking oil, day-old doughnuts and never antibiotics, or artificial growth promotants. Their welfare and premium quality meat are our number 1 priority and drive everything we do.
Our first pig was raised in a garage. It was good, but... Then we moved to our 10 acre farm, raised 4 for ourselves and friends and realized how good pork really can be. The night-and-day feeling you have when you eat really good bacon, ham, or pork chops is amazing. 1 pig became 4, became 6, 12, 24, 40... and thus was born Pete's Fine Swine. We added pastured chicken along the way as customers asked what else we could provide. And again, the difference between a store-bought, mass produced chicken and a bird that lived its whole life outdoors, on grass is truly amazing. It makes you realize how commoditized and homogenized our food has become, but it doesn't have to be that way. Try Pete's Fine Swine and see just how good pork and chicken can be..
