How We Raise Our Pastured Hogs

We are raising pure bred berkshires and 1/2 berkshire crosses. The berkshire is known for it’s exceptional flavor, hardiness, and grazing instinct. Our hogs are raised on pasture and fed a natural diet of GMO free corn, peas, alfalfa hay, scraps from our garden, milk when available, organic apple cider vinegar, and kelp. We DO NOT feed meat scraps or animal byproducts of any kind. All of these things add to the cost of raising the hogs, but we won’t sacrifice quality to deliver a cheaper product. The pigs enjoy rooting around and expressing their natural pigness. We occasionally move them to a new area and are working to move them more frequently. Our pigs are raised humanely living a comfortable, happy life. We never shock our pigs and we do not dock tails, cut teeth, or put rings in the nose of our pigs.We raise them from the beginning so that we have complete control from start to finish.

Our corn is raised by our neighbor. He is in the transition phase of his organic certification, and goes beyond the organic standards using turkey manure for fertilizer, and no herbicides or chemicals. We also feed organic peas from our food coop and we are currently looking for a local source for this. They will also receive alfalfa hay that we raise ourselves with no chemicals or artificial fertilizer. We only use compost and rotational grazing to naturally fertilize our land. The Thorvin Kelp is a natural supplement that comes from minerals dissolved in ocean water and contains over 60 vitamins, minerals, and amino acids in a readily available form, including iodine. Our pigs are on a natural deworming program including apple cider vinegar, diatomaceous earth (which consists of the fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled algae), and pumpkins.

    Grandma Mentink was so gracious to let me buy half of her hog while Angie walked me through the process. The meat locker at Brainard did a fantastic job and I could not be more pleased with my over all experience. First meal was cooking the pork chops and I could not believe the color, flavor or texture. I have been missing out on a treat. Very enjoyable country drive from Omaha (under 1 hour). I will be a long term customer and highly recommend Mentink farms.

    Just purchased our first 1/2 from Angie and had it processed also at Brainard. Our first meal was the pork sausage which was incredible. It is so nice to know where the pork came from, that is all beyond organic and the flavor is fantastic. Cannot wait to try the pork chops!!! I also highly recommend Mentink Family Farms ~ give them a try and you will not buy pork in the store again 🙂

    Purchased 1/2 a hog recently and I have to say I am so glad I did. This is the flavor I grew up with from my Uncle’s farm hogs. The flavor is beyond words. I have been disgusted with the pork in the stores for ever. My kids wouldn’t eat it anymore because the smell and taste is just gross…and this is what we have been missing out on! Every meal has been fantastic and grilling the chops…oooooh my…. better than steak! I am glad I found your website! You have been fantastic on running me through the whole process making it easy as this was my first time buying in this manner. Also, thank you for recommending Brainard Meat. They did a wonderful job and what a super nice man he is! Thank you and I will be contacting you for MORE?
