    Prior image & following fact from the Rodale Institute “97% of commercial hogs are raised in small, indoor, concrete-floored pens. Almost half are raised on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO), also known as factory farms. These intense operations lead to overcrowding, animal stress, disease, and excessive waste.”
    Meanwhile, pigs raised in the forest at Apsey Farms:
    Low-PUFA forest-raised pork as nature intended from our family farm. Rotational foraging means greater parasite resistance, and less disease – we don't need to use chemical dewormers, antibiotics, hormones, etc.

    Our pork has no soy, no corn, no GMOs, no medications, no vaccines, no chemicals, no added hormones, no nitrates/nitrites… As natural as it gets.
