“Respecting and honoring the pigness of the pig is a foundation for societal health.” ― Joel Salatin, The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs


When we decided to raise hogs at Idlewild, it stemmed from a deep desire to raise the collective consciousness of society, to offer an alternative to the conventional method. A way that could honor the piggness of pigs, allowing them to roam and graze in a way that allows them to more fully be themselves. While it can be rather difficult, we think it's important (since 3 out of 4 of us are meat eaters), to offer a conscious alternative to the way we breed and raise animals in this country.
