We have three local farms that raise animals for us. The farms all use humane practices, are antibiotic and growth hormone free, and raise our animals on a pasture diet full grass and whatever else they find foraging!

Ben Wilford raises al of our beef for us out of his small herd located in Danville, Ohio.
Spring Hills Farm provides our pork.
Here is what they say about their pork:
"It is a mistake to assume that pork is pork and that the breed it is derived from does not matter. Almost everyone could immediately tell the difference between the flavor of a Gala apple and a Golden Delicious. This difference comes from the genes that go into making these different varieties. Similarly, there are differences between pig breeds but most especially between traditional breeds such as our Tamworth and the modern hybrids used to supply your local grocery store.
Tucked away in the rolling hills of Licking County Ohio, pure Tamworth pigs forage among the fresh grass and clover of Spring Hill Farms. Their hospitable and stress-free environment is complemented by a feeding program that is free of antibiotics and growth hormones.Our heritage pork is unlike any other – a taste so deep and rich it echoes the flavor of pork from a bygone era. The meat is flavorful and, whether grilled, smoked, roasted, sautéed, stewed or braised, yields the most exquisite juiciness and tender texture."
