Premium Quality ・ Sustainable ・ Ethically Raised
PURE MOUNTAIN PORK is our brand for our forest raised pork.
Eating our pork is a legendary culinary experience.
We proudly raise our pigs the way they should be, free to roam, root, and wallow!
We raise Tamworth cross heritage breeds in rotational wood-lot paddocks.
No antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones.
Allowing pigs to move around and eat fresh roots and shoots makes for flavourfull well-muscled meat.
PASTURED PORK IS HEALTHY PORK
In 2021 we will be running two herds.
One that is fed Certified Organic fermented grains and Organic vegetable scraps from our juice bar & farm.
The second will be fed from a food recovery program called LOOP along with local chemical-free feed.
All our pigs also eat a plethora of local organic apples in the fall.
Our next harvest will be in June 2021, retail cuts will be available at Eat Pure Mountain Market, our Organic grocery store, in Golden BC.

*Prices are subject to change if the price of feed changes dramatically prior to us securing the seasons' supply.

*HANGING WEIGHT is the weight after slaughter but before butchering. The pig has been skinned, gutted and head/feet off. Hanging weight is approx 72% of live weight. A 250lb hog, hangs at 180lbs and equals 150lbs of retail cuts. The other 30lbs are the bones, organs & fat which are excellent for making bone broth, lard for cooking, incorporating organs into your diet or feeding the bones/organs to your dog, about 5% weight is lost to moisture loss.
The hanging weight of a whole pig is approx 160-200lbs.
