Welcome to the journey of our pasture based heritage homestead in Canada. Family run and women powered. We aren’t exactly what you would call traditional farmers. Myself (Jen) am a flight medic – what got me into homesteading in Canada who knows but one thing is for sure it is my therapy after a hard week at work. There is nothing more therapeutic then sitting in a pen full of pigs asking for attention. My wife Monica stays home and takes care of everything to do with the farm. How she manages it while I’m working no one will ever know.
Hogs & Horns Homestead was born out of a desire to know where our food comes from and has expanded as we have wanted to offer heritage meat breeds, ethically raised meat to other Albertans. We are passionate about growing, raising and preserving food. We believe that knowing where your food comes from is so important regardless of your diet choices. Ethically, sourcing food isn’t our only passion though! We are working hard to conserve heritage breeds that are struggling in Canada and some worldwide.
At Hogs & Horns Homestead a modern day homestead in Canada there is a little bit of everything but our main focus is pigs! Join us to learn more about mini pigs, endangered heritage livestock, heritage meat and modern homesteading on the Canadian prairies.
