Q: Jacklyn from Hawaii asks: "How are your pigs raised? Are they pastured mostly eating roots? Pasture and grain? If fed grain is the grain NON-GMO? Are they humanely raised and slaughtered? My biggest concern is what they eat! If you could please let me know I would appreciate it!"

A: "Jacklyn, The pigs for our pork are raised with no crates, no farrowing stalls, and no tethers. They are provided with ample space to exercise, lie, and move freely without obstruction. We do not permit tail docking, tooth clipping, de-tusking, or disk nose rings. They are fed an all-vegetarian diet – with no animal byproducts in their feed, no antibiotics, and no added growth hormones (Federal Regulations prohibit the use of Growth hormones in raising pigs).
