About the Ranch

Please forgive the rambling below, it is necessary to make the search engines work effectively.

The ranch works with local provincially licensed butchers to produce Rare Heritage Breed, Free Range, Heirloom Artisan pork meat products to help people fill part of their 100 mile diet (or Paleo diet) in communities like Qualicum, Lighthouse Country, Bowser, Whiskey Creek, French Creek, Ladysmith, Parksville, Nanaimo, Courtenay, Comox, Port Alberni, or Cumberland on Vancouver Island on the west coast of Canada.  You might buy pork shoulder, picnic, cushion, Boston Butt, blade steak, leg, ham, loin, baby back ribs, tenderloin, pork belly, spare ribs, secret, jowel, collar, neck, hocks, cracklin, caul fat, lace fat, leaf lard for pastry, sausage, bacon, ham and all sorts of Charcuterie. 

The Organic name has become very difficult to use without undergoing a expensive and time consuming bureaucratic process so one of my neighbours uses the term More-ganic.  The farm isn't organic certified, but we garden naked with no applied herbicides, pesticides or synthetic fertilizers.

If the keywords have worked and you have arrived here as a result of an internet search, then please read about the Large Black Pigs and order some really good pork.
