My husband & I along with our four children have owned our 60 acre farm for 11 years and previously ran sheep and horses.  We have now turned to Free Range Organic Pig farming with a small herd of Berkshire's.  We only breed Berkshire Pigs a "Heritage Breed" bred for its marbling & flavourful taste. These are the only pigs on farm & they are ethically raised pastured pigs which means they are free to roam, live, grow & enjoy their lives outdoors all the time.  Conveniently located between the Clare Valley & Barossa Valley; two regions committed to "Paddock to Plate" ethically farmed produce. Our pigs are fed an accurate balanced diet with an organic feed base & are free to graze, dig & forage continually. At Valley View we are committed to growing healthy animals & maintaining a healthy ecosystem for all.

Hi Valley View,

Welcome to the small farming forum, it is great to have you as part of the community. Paddock to plate has really grown in populairty and is a great niche for small farmers particularly as more consumers demand to know where their food comes from and that it was ethically raised.

I'm sure some of our newer farmers would love some tips on getting started in pig farming.

Regards,

Charlie
