We spent the spring and summer raising six Tamshire pigs for meat, which are a mix of the heritage breed Tamworth and Berkshire pigs. They spent the summer in our meadow turning up the soil, rolling in the mud, or sleeping under the trees. Eating farm produce, they enjoyed berries, apples, pumpkins, tomatoes, watermelon and cantaloupe. Anything they didn’t enjoy like asparagus, or potatoes, they composted into dark rich soil. Processed locally at Stayner Meats and butchered at Hoffman’s Meat & European Deli, we now have pork ready to sell.
Select cuts (all frozen): bacon, farmer sausage, ground pork, bone in pork chop, natural ham steak

But what is “local” food? How big of an impact does eating local food have on your health and the planet? And why is it important to know more about where your food comes from? Keep reading here.
