You Can Feel Comfortable Feeding Our Pork To Your Friends and Family Because:
We use a number of suppliers for our pork products but the one that we are most proud of started with a family farm in Thamesville Ontario. Thamesville is known for it's rich and diverse farming areas.
Our Pork program started as a cooperative effort between the main farm in Thamesville and Nutrafarms Inc. It was 6 years in the making but worth every second. You can take comfort in knowing, our Pork is raised with old fashion farming ideals. As far as we know Nutrafarms was the first supplier in Ontario to use these old fashioned methods and to the best of our knowledge the only significant operation of its kind in Canada.
Our main Farm is owned and run by a 5th generation pig farmer. The family truly cares about the animals they raise and they take great care and pride in their work. Sows are housed in large open pens with lots of fresh hay. Once they are ready to give birth they are moved to a private pen where they will live with her young until they are naturally ready for weaning. Usually at about 4 to 5 weeks old. In comparison, commercial pork operations will wean piglets at 2 to 3 weeks.
After being weaned from their mother, young pigs and their siblings are moved to another pen, again with lots of fresh hay. The animals are never moved away from the group of pigs they have always known so the stress of moving and re-establishing dominance in the group is eliminated.
The entire process is in open air barns without the use of controversial gestation or farrowing crates. Our animals always have access to fresh well water and nutritious un-medicated vegetarian feed.
Once ready for market they have a short 45 minute truck ride. It is important that the animals do not have a long journey to market so that stress and adrenalin is kept low.
Nutrafarms Inc. is very proud that what started out as an idea in 2006, has developed into our unique method of farming which now provides our customers with the majority of the pork products they consume.
In 2016 we were able to increase this supply by almost 30%. With our customers support, it is our belief that someday soon all of Nutrafarms Inc. pork will be raised this way.
