Regenerative farming is more than moving cattle and chickens over the pastures. Pasture raised pigs play an important role in improving soil health, too.
Our pigs roam freely on sunny pastures and in forest shade. This method of grazing is called "silvopasture" and it's perfect for pigs. Pigs are intelligent and they need a stimulating environment, plenty of exercise, and outdoor space to accommodate their natural desire to root in the soil. In this type of environment pigs are not only happy, they are also very healthy. Red House Ranch pigs eat grass, shoots, roots, and grubs they find in the field or on the forest floor. But, that's not enough to sustain and grow a healthy pig - they require additional carbohydrates and protein. We feed our piggies a non-GMO mix of wheat, barley and toasted soybeans. They do NOT receive any corn in their feed and we think this gives our pork an exceptionally delicious flavor profile.
The care they receive combined with a special feed blend makes for very happy, healthy pigs and ultimately pork with a good amount of fat and amazing flavor. You can eat pork from Red House Ranch worry free. Our animals have absolutely no exposure to routine antibiotics or hormones, agricultural chemicals or fertilizers and especially no CAFO-like living conditions. Once pigs have rooted through an area - about once every 2 - 3 weeks - they are moved to fresh pasture. The clean flavor of pork raised locally on a regenerative farm in the heart of the Finger Lakes Region by people you know simply can't be beat.

The notion of nose to tail eating is as old as the hills.
Our grandparents were well aware of the nutritional value of animal parts that today are often discarded.
We work hand in hand with our processors to carefully harvest pork liver, cheeks, kidneys, leaf lard, hearts, tongue, feet, and neck bones. These tasty bits are all available on our website and can be shipped directly to your home or picked up here at Red House Ranch.
