At Howe Farms we have developed an environment and nutrition plan to produce the highest quality pork available. Pork that not only tastes better, but is better for you.
We raise Mangalitsa and Mangalitsa/Heritage cross pigs. This breed is considered the “Kobe Beef” of the pork world and is highly sought after for its deliciously marbled red meat and lard. Our pigs are pasture raised and allowed to spend their days foraging for acorns and berries through grasses and woodlots, lounging in the sun, or rolling in the mud after a rain. We also provide our pigs with a NON-GMO, Corn Free, Soy Free, Hormone Free, and Antibiotic Free supplemental feed regiment consisting of our own mixture of wheat, oats, and barley.
These European Style methods have proven to produce meat that is more flavorful and tender than your average pork, and better for the consumer. Our methods produce pork that is free of hormones and antibiotics, lower in polyunsaturated fat, and higher in omega 3 acid, linoleic acid (“good” fatty acid that helps lower cholesterol), Vitamin E, and Vitamin D.
