Our hogs have dynamic flavor because we feed them a bio diverse and bio dynamic diet. Black Soldier Flies are an essential part of our young pigs diet to stimulate muscle growth through natural protein. This is Earth candy for our pigs. #biodynamic #protein #naturallygrown #pigfeed #larva #grubs #bushraised #seasonal

We picked up 20 Mangalista today from a breeder in New Jersey that will now become part of our premium herd #mangalista #lard #flavor #heritage #rare #cheflife #pigroast

We took a lot of time, love and attention growing out this special hog. It represents the beauty of our veterans community to pay attention to detail and create the conversation that propels us forward to continue this beautiful work. Chef Hector from @elsuperpan_pcm and his crew have given honor to our hog in the end as we have done in the beginning. We are proud to call him friend and look forward to working with him in the future. Today was an awesome day at the peach fest in Atlanta. What a great event! #peachfest2017 #latincuisine #heritagehogs #crispyskin #besthogever #veterans #porkstar #roasted #cheflife #piggybank #cochon555 @thedirtfarm #lacajachina #meat #meatlovers #crispyskin #pork #theoriginalredmeat

Chef Hector from @elsuperpan_pcm cooked one of our rare American Mule Foots today at the #peachfest2017 in #atlanta . He is an amazing talent! The mule foot is a descendant from spanish pigs and Chef Hectors Latin influence married so well to our pork. It was beyond amazing! Job well done! @thedirtfarm #awesome #porkstar #peachfest2017 #piggybank #cochon555 #atlantafood #delicious #spanishfood #herbs #spices #crispy #heritagepork #cheflife #chopped #roasted

We hosted a Vietnam Veterans biker group today. These are our brothers who have paved the way for where we are today. The tribulations they face and the continued struggle they deal with to have a quality life is truly sad. It was an honor to have them and their families at Comfort Farms today. Thanks for supporting us so we can help support all of our vets and their families #vietnamvet #nam #cominghome #thestruggleisreal #neverforget #pow #military #healingthroughagriculture #america #hope #family #community

This is a first Generation Comfort Farms Exclusive. We call this premium F1 cross "Keo Keo" Hawaiian word for White White or as it can be referred to the "White Bush Pig". I am creating this line in honor of my Hawaiian friend and Hunter Chuck Delamielleure. Chuck spent years in the mountains of Hawaii living off the land. Hunting wild boar and feral cow. He is a true survialist and would have made one hell of a special operator. Over many a camp fires I sat in amazement listening to his stories about the spirits of the Mountain and the culture of Hawaiians and how the King put systems in place to protect his legacy and people. We ate, we cried, we bled and sweat together in the beginning of Comfort Farms. I cherish Chuck's Friendship and it came to head when one day we spoke about one of his hunting adventures where he caught this white bush hog that had a mule foot and said it was special. He said it was delicious.. one of the best eating hogs he has ever taste. From that point on. I told Chuck I will recreate a line in honor of him. Hallie Zimmerman Duan is the first ever to offer this line Keo Keo to an exclusive dinner this weekend. We are pleased to come this far and look forward to making this breed better. Her chef's are in awe at how beautiful this pig is. #bushhog #friends #hoghunter #lacajachina #hawaii #goodeats #purpose #givingback #heritage #cheflife #stories

Dropped off a Mule/York to Hallie Janes catering. We were able to add fat, intramuscular fat and redness of meat to a commerical breed by using our rare cross. #makeporkgreatagain #porkstar #theoriginalredmeat #cheflife #pitmaster #wholehog #bbq

The beauty of raising heritage hogs and creating the best pork ever is the ability to see your work transform right before your eyes. We took a Mule foot and crossed it with a pure Yorkshire. Typically in any other breed the black pig Mule foot is the Dominate trait. We have some very strong genetics that overpower most of any other breeds. With the exception of the Yorkshire. Interestingly enough a Sire mule / crossed with a Damn York will produce predominantly pink pigs with Holstein black patterns scattered through out. In all other breeds we crossed the black Mulefoot coloring is the dominate color. The common trait that all crosses have with the mule are the mule hooves. Which tells us that the mule foot/syndactyl hooves are the dominate trait in many breeds when crossed with the mule foot. Was there an ancient breed like the wolf of all hogs that carried the syndactyl trait? We don't know.. but it's evident that many pigs have this trait in their genetic makeup. Additionally.. we were able to take this Commerical pig that is bred to be lean with less fat and add fat to it in this F1 cross. The F1 crosses look like pink Mule foots vs the York's they come from. We will take some pics of the carcass and examine the meats color and see if there is any evidence of intramuscular fat that Mules are known for. Additionally we also hope to see how big the chops are compared to the smaller but extremely tender chops of the mule foot. #workinprogress #perfectingourcraft #hogfarming #creatingourownchange #research #thisiswork #heritagehogs
