Our pigs live their lives on pasture, free to forage and roam. Our rotational grazing practice sees the pigs regularly moved to new paddocks giving them constant access to fresh grass and soil. Our pigs are pasture-adapted, ready for your farm.
We run a mixed herd of Duroc, Hampshire, Large White, Saddleback and F1 cross sows. This planned crossbreeding system promotes hybrid vigor in our pigs with each breed selected for specific traits. We also use Artificial Insemination (AI) to broaden our genetic option.
Why cross breeding works?
- Fast growing piglets
- Heavier piglets at weaning & slaughter
- Pastured adapted
- Better carcass characteristics
- Better feed conversion
- More flexibility for your slaughter timeframe
We supply live weaner pigs to farms all across Australia
“Free to roam and grow naturally.”
Natural and safe farrowing
Our gestating sows are fully free range with free access to pasture, shade, shelter and wallows. When time to farrow our sows find their way to our moveable huts and shelters out in the paddocks. This provides a safe and warm environment for farrowing sows out of the weather keeping both the sow and the litter comfortable. With farrowing and nursing being an instinctive activity, we only assist when complications are evident.
Once weaned, all our pigs are grown outdoors in free to roam spacious paddocks. We castrate our pigs but do not dock tails or clip teeth. You can find out more about how we rear our pigs and the way they live on Sustainability >

Health and nutrition
Our feeding regime promotes a high level of foraging, feeding our pigs a supplemental feed twice daily of grain. No growth promoters, hormones or antibiotics are used in our feed.
All our pigs are vaccinated and wormed to ensure they are in the best possible health. Pigs are vaccinated for prevention against leptospirosis as well as swine erysipelas (Lepto-Eryvac® vaccine) plus future breeding stock vaccinated to prevent parvovirus (Porcine Parvac® vaccine). This ensures our pigs are as healthy as possible.
