The Animals We Raise
Surrounded by acorn and hazelnut trees amongst elderberries, grasses, and apple trees, our large black boars and Tamworth sows have never seen the inside of a gestation crate. Their piglets are called “Black & Tam’s”!
Did you know? Increasing your Vitamin D intake could be as easy as buying Together Farms pork! Since our pigs spend their days basking in the sunlight and eating freshly-grown plants, they potentially have up to 5 times the amount of Vitamin D when compared to conventionally raised pork! Now that’s something to cure your SAD!
Our turkeys, chicken, and ducks are all truly free-range. We only supplement them with 100% organic feed when absolutely necessary. They spend most of their days taking dust baths, scratching up the dirt and picking bugs. Our ducks love the pond and preen themselves regularly as they float around nipping water bugs off the surface!
While industrial poultry is forced to finish in a leg-breaking 6 weeks, our poultry wanders the farm gobbling up buggy morsels for 12 weeks. This ensures the quality of life and health of the animals is preserved.
Cattle at Together Farms share some of their pastures with the four horses and flock of sheep in residence. We have British White Park (pictured to the right).
Like all of our other farm residents, these lambs feast on grasses around our various pastures until their hearts are content! Our lambs are Tunis lambs – Slow Food Ark of Taste breeds.https://www.slowfoodusa.org/ark-of-taste-in-the-usa
