We are very proud of the herd of Berkshire pigs we have built. We strive for high quality pigs, so we only keep the best genetics and only house a few sows and boars. Keeping our breeding herd small helps us to focus on a high quality product. The Berkshire is known as a heritage breed. This means that they do grow much slower than commercial raised breeds. Berkshires are known for their high quality lean meat, with a gourmet taste.
All of our pigs are pasture raised, they are fed a diet free of commercial feeds. Our pigs are fed fruits, vegetables and brewers grain. This enables us to produce a leaner meat with much less waste, of the animal in the end.
Valley Brook Farm has partnered with Reklis Brewery in Bethlehem, NH. One of our focuses here on the farm is that nothing goes to waste. This is also a vision of Reklis. We feed many animals here the spent grains from Reklis. Our boar the gigantic Willie D. Has been honored with a robust brew named in his honor. We are proud to announce Willie D's Red Ale is now available for sale from Reklis Brewery.
