You Can Raise Pigs on Pasture


"About 99 percent of all pigs raised in the U.S. are raised in confinement buildings, on operations known as CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations)."
— The Dodo

Candi JohnsWhere does your pork live?

Were they raised on concrete? Or pasture? Does it matter?

Yes! It does. Let me explain.

This post should come with a mild warning. Some people seem to think the proper way to carry a piglet is by its back legs or leg. I do not subscribe to this particular philosophy, but many folks do (like, apparently, everyone but me).

Brace yourself, you are about to see poor, little piglets helplessly dangling from their back legs.
