HERITAGE BREED PORK
©2021 Hickory Nut Gap :: Website by Native Marketing :: Asheville, NC
We focus on the wellbeing of the animal — allowing the pigs to exhibit their natural behaviors, free from confinement. Low stress handling techniques lead to higher quality meat and more humane treatment of the animals. Hogs raised on pasture eat a more diverse diet than those raised in confinement and result in meat that is more nutritious and delicious. Hogs are also exceptional at soil aeration, pasture maintenance, and shrub clearing. They are the farm’s natural tractor plows.
Hogs raised on pasture have much higher levels of Vitamin E, Vitamin D and Selenium than hogs raised in confinement? Vitamin E and Selenium are powerful antioxidants that can help lower your risk of infections.
Partner Hog Farmers
We work with farmers across the state of North Carolina to raise high quality pastured pork without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. All hog farmers adhere to Hickory Nut Gap’s protocol standards. Farm visits and 3rd party audits are used to ensure all Hickory Nut Gap meat is raised with care for the animals, respect for the land, and transparency for the consumer.
