Procter pork and chicken for sale

Heritage breed pigs were raised on pasture, free to roam and root in the soil to forage for grass seeds and insects while fertilizing the gardens at Procter. On a warm summer day, you would find our pigs lounging in their self-created mud pit, wagging their tails as they root around in the soil.

Our chickens are raised on pasture in a “chicken tractor”. This is a lightweight moveable chicken coop built from PVC pipes. The tractor is moved everyday so the chickens are always on fresh grass. This helps to keep them clean, allowing them to forage for grass, seeds and insects, as well as helps to fertilize next year’s garden.

Studies show pork and chickens raised on pasture have superior nutritional quality compared to conventionally-raised pork, and chicken with more nutrients and lower total fat content. Our pigs and chickens are always fed a diet free of GMOs, chemicals and medications.

Please contact Robin at 740.206.2036 or rkimbler@proctecenter.org  if you are interested in buying any meat. It is always available for sale at Procter if you are there for a meeting.
