Conservation through Sustainable Small-Scale Farming
At Hogs & Horns Homestead we strive to preserve endangered heritage breeds through sustainable small-scale farming. By using ethical practices and focusing on regenerative agriculture. We strive to offer education while providing ethically raised heritage live animals and meat.
Offering Heritage Pigs, Sheep, Goats, Miniature Cattle, Chickens, Turkeys, Ducks, Geese, Rabbits, and Guinea Fowl.
Why do we focus on heritage breeds? Hogs and Horns Homestead believes that quality meat and animals are well worth the wait. Originally, our forefathers were farming traditional breeds. They were hardy, slow-growing, fantastic foragers with vigor, and great mothering skills. Throughout the years, the food industry moved to use hybrids because of their quick growth and ability to withstand rigors of confinement. Unfortunately, this resulted in many heritage animals threatened by extinction. We are working hard to save specific breeds and increase their numbers. We raise our animals on pasture. This allows them to have access to fresh air, sunlight, and freedom to forage. As a result, they live their lives as nature intended.
How our animals are raised is very important to us. We believe that whether they’re destined to feed us, be raised as pets or livestock additions, all animals should be respected and given the best life possible regardless of its length.
Increasing numbers through ethical breeding, bloodline tracking and promoting awareness on how we can save these amazing heritage breeds.
