Free Range Pigs
Our Rojo Pez Free Range Pigs are raised in small groups on pasture and woodland. Their shelters are
soft and dry, with warm straw bedding. They are free to roam at will, to play, root and forage as nature intended
and experience none of the overcrowding related stressors that plague their factory raised cousins.
They dine on non-medicated antibiotic and hormone free food as well as a regular selection of greens, fruits,
vegetables and grains, and whatever grass, leaves, rootlets, worms and berries they may find in their travels.
Another difference is that our pigs are allowed to grow slowly. This results in a higher quality meat,
darker and more flavourful. It stands alone in quality and taste.
What Makes Rojo Pez Pork Different?
We raise our pigs differently, with 2 goals in mind:
Raise happy pigs – provide a natural environment with minimal stress. Let pigs be pigs.
Produce healthier pork – slow down the rate of growth and feed a more robust diet in order to produce
richer and more nutritious meat.
Our farm differs from factory farms because we:
Federal rules dictate that in order to sell our pork, they must be slaughtered in a government approved facility.
Because our pigs are raised in this way, we see minimal fighting and do not need to take additional measures to
|What We Offer|
|HOW TO ORDER|
We sell our pigs by the half and charge $5/lb dress weight (this means the weight of the pig after the internal organs have been removed, but before it has been cut into the various chops, hams, roasts, bacon etc. The final butchered cost/pound varies but is closer to $7/lb. Depending on how big it is, a half pig can cost between
$375 and $475.
Orders are made in advance. New purchasers or anyone who wishes to have custom butchering performed must pay a deposit. Arrangements will be made to deliver the pork on the same day it is ready from the butcher.
Because of the above format, our pork is only available to residents of the Sea to Sky Corridor or Lower Mainland of BC.
