Hoods Heritage hogs is a small family run farm located in beautiful Brown County Indiana just east of Bean Blossom. We believe in raising healthy hogs in a sustainable manner. We do not use subtherapeutic antibiotics or growth hormones. All of our Red Wattles have access to pasture and a good mud wallow. In other words, they live their lives doing what pigs do: rooting, wallowing, sun bathing and eating. We believe that every animal deserves to be well treated while they are with us.
The Red Wattle is an American heritage breed that was almost lost. Currently there are less then 700 registerd Red Wattles. In order to save the breed we must get Red Wattle pork back on the plate. I know it sounds counter intuitive, but to save the breed we must eat them. If there is no demand for Red Wattle Pork then the breed will disappear.
Here at HHH farm we save the best and eat the rest. This improves the breed by keeping the very best genetics in the gene pool. And it puts yummy RW pork on the table. RW pork isn't "the other white meat". It is juicey, red meat with amazing flavor. Our bacon and hams are cured naturally using herbs, spices and celery juice powder- not chemical nitrates- them smoked to perfection.
