Pig Crafters is located in Goochland, Virginia where we raise Heritage
breed Hogs in a wooded and pasture environment. What makes us unique? Our
hogs are finished on the mash used to make Reservoir Bourbon in Richmond,
Virginia. This slightly alcoholic polenta like Porridge is fed after a
strict all day feeding regimen that starts with the fields we manipulate
ourselves. Pasture full of clover, rapini, timothy grass, garlic, chives,
field peas are opened up for the hogs to forage on. Five acres of
pesticide and herbicide free grass is cut daily to supplement natural
foraging. The hogs have access to whey from Caramount Farms in Scottsville,
Virginia and depending on the time of year different seasonal variations
are presented to them as well. Acorns, chestnuts and black walnuts have
fallen as Autumn is in full swing and we have been feeding the hogs barrel
loads full. Pumpkins, sweet potatoes and corn. Finally the evening is
time for the mash, and the rotation starts all over again.
Hogs rich in flavor, creamy fat, and nice red meat is the reward. We look
forward to meeting with you at the Blonde Butcher Baker on Saturday December
3. Custom cut, specialty roasts and “Meet the Farmer” all in one day.
