Pastured Pork

Demand for pasture-raised, high-welfare pork continues to grow. The benefits of pastured production for animals, the land, and people are indisputable. This workshop is for farmers who are interested in integrating pigs into their operations and also for pig producers who are moving toward pastured production. Participants will hear from Animal Welfare Approved’s lead auditor, Tim Holmes, who has more than 24 years of experience as an outdoor pastured pig farmer in North Carolina. In addition, Guido Frosini from True Grass Farms, which is AWA-certified for beef cattle and pigs, will share his experiences raising hogs outdoors in Sonoma County. Learn the best practices for producing consistent high quality pork, how you can ensure animal well-being in an outdoor system, and how AWA certification can help distinguish high-welfare products in the marketplace.
