New York State Pasture Raised Meats: Sustainable, Convenient, Delicious
The Piggery makes pastured pork and turkey products from a select group of local farms raising animals on pasture (in season, but they always have green things to eat and outdoor access) to exacting specifications. All of our meat processing is done in house by our crew of talented butchers and chefs at our small but state of the art processing facility in Ithaca, NY. Our processed meats are free of nitrates*, binders and preservatives. No junk!
The supplemental grain mixes we feed are GMO-free and very low in PUFA. The diets are barley-based, much like the traditional hog diets of Northern Europe and Canada, which have long been known to make the best bacon. This means our pork and turkey is low in overall PUFA and has a healthier Omega 6 : Omega 3 ratio than other products on the market, including most other pastured and organic pork products. Paleo pork and turkey! Our fresh, never frozen deli meats, pork chops, hot dogs and charcuterie are the stuff of legend and for the first time we are offering them for direct sale online.

*please note that we do make just one product with Instacure #1 (pink salt). The holiday hams are too large for us to accomplish a nitrate free cure with. We have lots of other roast options for the holiday if you prefer a cure free ham:)
