The Importance Of Sustainable Pork Farming

Sustainable pork farming is essential for maintaining a healthy environment and ensuring animal welfare. Nutrafarms is committed to these practices, which help reduce the environmental impact and improve the quality of the pork. These methods also help to ensure that animals are treated humanely, contributing to happier and healthier animal.

Meet Arno: The Farmer Behind the Pork

Arno and his oldest son manage their family farm near Stayner and Tiny, Ontario. Arno’s family have been farming for generations, and their dedication to traditional practices make him an ideal partner for Nutrafarms.

On Arno's Farm

Arno cultivates his own feed whenever possible, allowing him to control the quality and nutritional content of what his animals eat. This practice ensures that the pigs receive optimal nutrition, which translates into higher quality pork. Growing his own feed also reduces the environmental impact by eliminating the need for excess transportation.

Heritage Pork Breeds

Heritage Pork Breeds
The farm raises a crossbreed of Yorkshire and Duroc pigs. Yorkshire pigs are known for their excellent meat quality, while Duroc pigs are valued for their robustness and flavour. This careful selection results in pork that is both flavourful and nutritious.

Yorkshire Pigs
Yorkshire pigs are prized for their lean, tender meat with fine muscle fibres, offering a mild flavour and juicy texture. They also exhibit efficient growth and reproductive performance.

Duroc Pigs

Duroc pigs add robustness and exceptional flavour to our pork. Known for their hardiness, Durocs produce meat with rich marbling and a deep red colour, enhancing juiciness and succulence.

The Perfect Crossbreed

By combining Yorkshire and Duroc breeds, we produce pork that is flavourful, nutritious, and consistent in quality. The lean and tender traits of Yorkshires complement the robust, juicy profile of Durocs, ensuring every cut is delicious.

Quality Assurance Programs

Arno’s farm is CQA (Canadian Quality Assurance) certified, meeting high standards for animal care and food safety. This certification assures customers that the pork is produced responsibly and safely.

Benefits of Sustainable Pork

Arno’s commitment to animal welfare is evident in his farming practices. The pigs are given ample space and a stress-free environment, which are essential for their well-being. Regular health checks ensure that the animals are healthy throughout their lives.

Farm Cleanliness and Hygiene

Arno maintains high standards of cleanliness and hygiene on his farm. This attention to detail helps prevent disease and ensures that the pork is safe and healthy. A clean farm environment is crucial for producing high-quality meat.
