Berkshires are a heritage breed of pig, discovered over 300 years ago in Berkshire County in England. Berkshire pork is renowned for its richness, texture, marbling, tenderness and overall depth of flavor. Berkshire pork is genetically predisposed to producing the finest quality pork due to its shorter muscle fibers and lots of marbling.
Cedar Shade Farm Berkshires are registered with the American Berkshire Association. In the U.S., the ABA, established in 1875, gives pedigrees only to pigs directly imported from established English herds. Pedigree assures quality.
Cedar Shade Farm does not use antibiotics to promote growth. All of our animals are raised naturally and humanely. They eat fresh vegetables and feed balanced with vitamins and minerals needed for a healthy pig. They are raised in a pen large enough for freedom of movement and plenty of fresh air.
We sell the pigs as live animals or they can be purchased as processed pork. Click here to see Available pigs we have.
