This week I had the opportunity to attend Farmbuilder’s Farrow to Finish and Marketing School at J&L Green Farms in Virginia. This is the class taught by Farmbuilder founder Jordan Green and his wife at their farm.
The class was outstanding and very helpful in sharing ideas on how to raise pigs on pasture to scale including farrowing pigs on pasture, weaning piglets, feeding pigs, processing pigs and then marketing your farm in a way that is profitable and sustainable.
The 4 day school is packed with valuable information that anyone interesting in pasture raised pork can use. We discussed equipment used, rotational grazing, paddock setup, feed rations and more. The marketing portion went over farmer’s markets, delivery points, shipping, social media and other ways to promote your farm.
I would highly recommend this class for anyone that may be interested in starting a pastured pig operation all the way to someone who is currently doing a large number of pigs each year.
Sheraton Park Farms practices holistic, sustainable farming and soil building using a rotational grazing model as we try to grow more grass on our farm.
