Today, they have 3,000 (each of which lays one egg each day).

Berkwood Farms

The producers are very conscientious of how the pigs are raised and do so with the utmost care. Many are using production methods that have been passed down through many family generations.

  • No antibiotics or hormones are used to promote unnatural growth
  • Raised with room to move – No confined spaces
  • Fed a wholesome, all vegetarian, grain based diet
  • Grown in a manner to minimize stress

Pigs take on the flavor of what they eat, so Berkwood farmers feed their pigs an acorn and grain based vegetarian diet. This diet enhances the flavor and health of the pork allowing them to provide Proper Sausages with the best pork round.
