Cage Free Pork
From Nutrafarms


When shopping for pork products, people want to know that the food they are buying is drug-free, locally raised, and has never been confined in a cage. That is why Nutrafarms has designed our pork farming program using traditional farming methods.


Our pork farm is located in the Sarnia area. Our animals are housed in open-air barns with fresh straw bedding.  They have unlimited access to fresh well water, and no cages are ever used in their upbringing. This ensures that our customers only receive the highest quality of cage-free pork products available in Ontario.  


What makes our pork farm special?


  • check
    Our pork farm is a "closed operation".  This means all of our pork is born and raised on one farm.  This is an important distinction. Closed operations reduce the risk of cross-contamination and diseases from other farms which eliminates the need for sub-therapeutic treatment.  Our animals are always familiar with their surroundings and the individuals in their group. This familiarity contributes to a minimal level of stress.

    Sows are housed in open-air pens with fresh straw bedding and constant natural airflow.
  • check
    Sows are fed a high quality, unmedicated feed consisting of grain and oats which are grown on the farm.  
  • check
    It's important to stress the fact that our farm never uses artificial insemination or gestation crates.
  • check
    Before giving birth, sows are moved to a private pen with fresh straw bedding so that they can give birth naturally.  In most cases, animals are born with little no interaction with the farmer.
  • check
    After being born, the animals live in their pen as a family unit.  The young only leave their mother's care when they are naturally ready to wean.  No farrowing crates are ever used and we never dock the tails of our animals.  This creates far less stress on our animals and less stress equals less sickness.

    After weaning, the young pigs are moved into a community barn where they can frolic, play and socialize with other members of their litter.

    Our adolescent and adult pigs' environments consist of straw bedding, open air barns and outdoor pasture (weather permitting).  At no time do our pigs live on slatted floors and they are never caged.

Why Do Old Fashioned Farming Methods Matter to Me?

Our main farm is owned and run by a 3rd generation pig farmer. His family truly cares about the animals they raise and they take great care and pride in their work.   Their animals are raised without modern farming methods like slatted floors, crates or artificial insemination. Although traditional farming typically takes longer, you can feel confident that the pork products you buy from Nutrafarms are raised ethically, locally and without the use of sub-therapeutic medications.

Can You Actually Tell The Difference Between Cage Free Pork and Factory Farmed Products?

Absolutely!  Our customers almost always tell us is that the meat we provided "tastes meatier" has "more substance" and "tastes the way meat used to taste".  You don't have to take our word for it though, you can listen to what our customers have to say right here on our testimonial page.
