Daffodil Spring practices regenerative agriculture and holistic land management. This means that pigs are frequently rotated every two weeks to fresh grass. What the pigs have rooted up is sowed with a cover crop mixture of buckwheat, red clover, and beets in the spring and summer and oats and red clover in the fall. This builds our soil and provides food for the animals.
Daffodil Spring sources its pigs (Tamworth-Old Spot crosses, 2017; Berkshire-Hereford crosses, 2018) from Melinda Brown of Never Ending Farm in Sugar Grove, NC, an Animal Welfare Approved farmer.
To supplement the pigs’ food, they are fed a GMO-free pig feed diet, by hand, twice a day. There is always fresh, clean water available and ample room for them to root and graze. Feeding them by hand, allows me to assure that they remain healthy and makes them easier to work with and better natured.
