To produce a humanely raised product while remaining sustainable.
Pasture Raised Pork Est. 2010
Linton pasture pork is a farrow to finish family run farm located in Walton, Ontario. We are a niche market pork producer who believes in humane and sustainable production.
Linton Pasture pork hogs are raised outdoors between spring and fall. During this time the hogs are often seen foraging in the pasture or relaxing in their “self made” ponds. They also have free access to their huts which are designed and built by Jeffrey. The huts provide shelter during inclement weather and a home for the sows to farrow. They sit directly on the ground and are packed with straw. The huts are designed to prevent the babies from getting out during their first 2 weeks of life at which point they are able to safely get in and out.
During the winter season they are raised in an old fashioned bank barn with an outdoor access.
Our hogs are fed a non genetically modified grain based feed. Our grains are grown, stored, and milled on the farm. They also supplement their nutrients by foraging in their outdoor pasture during Spring/Summer/Fall.
I have been in the pig business all of my life working with my parents on their farrow to finish operation in Huron County, Ontario.
I graduated Ridgetown College with a diploma in Agriculture and moved back home to help once again on the family farm.
In 2010, I spent 3 months in Scotland working on an outdoor sow farm with 500 animals. During this time, I developed and refined my husbandry skills and learned how to raise pigs outside and work in close contact with them. I then returned to Canada where I utilized my skills and started Linton Pasture Pork in 2014.
What started as a small farrow to finish operation on my parent’s front lawn, Linton Pasture Pork has now grown to a large scale operation with over 600 pigs. I have gained a vast amount of hands on experience in both farming and agriculture and have perfected the art of cover crops, replanting pastures, while practicing sustainable farming.
