Advantages of Pasture Raised Pork
Join Casey Oxley farm manager for the Piggery to discuss pasture vs. barn raised pigs, hear the advantage of pigs on pasture! Casey will discuss how their pasture rotations work, describe their fencing techniques, and talk about the magic of pigs. Also hear from Heather and Brad Marshall, owners of The Piggery, about the history of the business, their processing, and their marketing.
The Piggery is a family owned farm that raises natural pastured pork. It is located in the heart of the Finger Lakes on 60 acres of beautiful land. In 2006 Heather and Brad Marshall did everything from feeding pigs to marketing meat to making sausage. In 2010 Casey Oxley came on as the farm manager so Heather and Brad could focus on the restaurant in Ithaca. Since then they have been working together as big family to bring good food to the community.
