Hog Shares Available Now!

 

Penn’s Corner is pleased to offer hog shares from Blackberry Meadows!  The hogs are raised in open air on the farm from birth and are not confined to an indoor space. They root for insects and roots, while eating much of the foliage from the above ground plants and bark.  They are also fed culled organic vegetables from the farm, and supplemented with a non-GMO verified feed.

The breed is mixed for growth vigor, meat quality and mothering temperament.  The breed is primarily Duroc and Yorkshire (75%) mixed with the hardy constitutions, excellent foraging abilities and very docile temperaments of Large Black and Hereford (25%).
