Pork for Sale

We are excited to announce our first Berkshire pork for sale! All natural, humanely treated, pasture raised, purebred Berkshire (Kurobuta) Pork. We are the only registered farm in Utah raising Berkshire Pigs. Berkshire pork tastes the way pork used to taste, before pigs were bred to compete with chicken (the other white meat).  Berkshire Pork is often called the "Kobe Beef of Pork". It is finely marbled meat and honestly the most delicious pork you will ever eat. It is more tender and moist than any other breed. We have loads of information on our blog as well as two different side by side comparisons between our pork and traditional pork.

We sell our pork by the half or whole. The cost is calculated by the hanging weight usually 160-220 lbs for a whole pork. Click here for current pricing and here for availablility. This is the finest pork in the country and at prices similar to the artificially enhanced grocery store pork. We will deliver the pork to our drop points in Salt Lake County, Utah County, and Tooele County.

Support your local farm! We care about our animals and pamper them. You are welcome to visit our farm and pick out your own pig if would like. You will be surprised how happy and healthy our pigs are if you have visited other farms. Our place doesn't reek of ammonia and have zombie looking pigs laying around. These pigs are not fed any bread or leftovers. Some farms advertise grain fed pigs, but what they don't tell you is that they are also feeding them bread, twinkies etc... This greatly reduces the quality of the meat. Our Berkshires are not raised in 6" of their own waste but rather in pasture where they can eat fresh grass, locally grown grains, and alfalfa. Because they are so healthy, there is no need for antibiotics and never any hormones. All this on top of genetically being the best tasting breed means the healthiest, most delicious pork. Thanks for checking out our blog and learning about where our meat comes from. We will be happy to answer any questions for you.

Feel free to contact us with any questions!

Joseph - Thanks for checking out our blog. Your friends are right, Berkshire pork is the best! Unfortunately, we do not sell breeding stock. There are several farms on the American Berkshire Association site that do sell breeders. Click on the ABA logo on the right side of our blog to get to their site. Take Care!

Why do you have white pigs on your Berkshire site?

The background is actually just a template. We are not computer savvy enough to create our own background. If you look through the pictures that we posted in each blog posting you will see Berkshires!

Good deal! It makes me feel good to read about other people raising animals this way. I'm saving up to buy some acreage myself, and also plan on raising Berkshires, Wagyu beef, free range chickens, and turkey's. I'll be feeding the Berks fresh non GMO produce from a in farm aquaponics operation, as well as supplementing their non GMO feed with sprouted fodder. I can't wait to get started in central California. I'm even considering a mobile slaughterhouse because there is not much available for humane slaughtering of the animals anymore in this state.
