Tom and Kerri are primarily focused on raising good pork at Pinewynd Farm, which, of course, starts with great pigs. Kerri isn't amused when Tom repeatedly says that their pork is the only thing he likes more than his pigs. Although Tom does love Kerri very much, he stands steadfast by his statement. Kerri spends the majority of her time, when not nursing, competing with the pigs for Tom's attention. She is often found playing, sleeping, grazing amongst the hogs; mimicking their behaviour, in yet more futile attempts. Kerri is jealous that Pinewynd Pigs have acreage to roam year round, dry bedding, and all the sunlight they can absorb. While Tom prepares their broad-balanced meals three times a day, Kerri often prays that just one time he puts that amount of effort into cooking a dinner at home. All of this pig passion is unfortunate for Kerri, but great for you!
Pinewynd Farm knows that a well respected animal, when given the chance to live a life in an environment concurrent to its genetics, is a much healthier animal. These low stressed animals are far more enjoyaable to raise, and Tom and Kerri feel that they provide a superior meat. Due to their more natural lifestyle Pinewynd Farm never needs to use antibiotics, medicated feed, or any injections of that matter. Tom and Kerri mill their own feed on their farm, supplementing heavily with food grade 'byproducts' including hemp, cream, apples, spent brewers grain, and culled vegetables.
Tom and Kerri write that they are proud to be one of the early suppliers of Graze & Gather. Dave and Emily, and the entire crew, have done a fantastic job pivoting, tweaking, and pivoting some more to navigate these challenging times. They've formulated a service that greatly helps small producers and farmers get their quality products to their community. Tom and Kerri thank you greatly for your support, and long live the heritage hog!!
