It's in our name...
We are positive that a free ranging life is the best for our pigs, our pasture and for you.
Imagine a pig rooting, roaming and playing with his team on thirty acres of lush pasture.
We bear witness that this fine Colorado life produces the tastiest pork that you will buy.
Meet Your FarmerOur land, water, air and animals are living treasures which we tend to with utmost respect and responsibility. We are located in Hotchkiss, Colorado.
Toby McPartland, OwnerToby McPartland, Owner/Rancher I am a first generation farmer and rancher, passionate for demonstrating the economic viability of small-scale agricultural systems. I am proud to live in Hotchkiss and be a contributing part to the Delta County Colorado farming community. I enjoy growing good food, raising healthy animals and sharing my skills. I have spent time abroad including the Peace Corps in Senegal, West Africa and as an agricultural consultant in both Costa Rica and Guatemala. I have worked in farm management at the Center for Urban Agriculture, The Esalen Institute, Cal Poly State University and Twin Willows Land & Cattle Company.
Hayden Kessel, Ranch HandI grew up with great food in my backyard and have long held a passion for wholesome nutrition. As a proud omnivore, I desire a close relationship with the meat I eat and am grateful for the ultimate sacrifice these pigs make to feed us so well. Our spot in Hotchkiss, Colorado offers so much bounty for our animals and me to enjoy. I studied design in college and enjoy contributing my different skills to the farm, from in-field problem solving to logo and brand development. Belly rubs and back scratches are among my top priorities here on the land and I am excited to start each morning before the sun comes up over the West Elk Mountains.
Our PigsOur heritage breed pigs prefer to work for their food and are regularly moved to fresh pastures. Pigs really do graze! These highly intelligent and social animals thrive foraging, playing and exploring the cottonwood forest and lush fields here in Hotchkiss, Colorado. We take great pride offering our pigs a good life and the opportunity to fully express their pigness.
What is A Perfect Pasture?Make no mistake, the best bacon comes from a sweet pasture:
Fescue, rye, wheat grass, clovers, alfalfa, dandelion, chicory...
...this is a hog's heaven of greens and goodies.
In addition they get turnips, radishes and grain that they harvest fresh themselves. Plus a NON-GMO custom grain ration and other supplemental treats like organic apples.
A perfect pasture naturally sustains its fertility. It's a cycle we appreciate and enhance by moving the pigs every two weeks to fresh ground.
The pigs are good for the land and the land is good for the pigs.

Now its Time to Fill Your Freezer
Colorado Pastured Pork is $5/lb plus the cost of processing. Our hogs are available in the fall and are sold whole by their hanging weight: the weight before processing.
Your initial deposit will reserve your whole hog. This deposit is approximately half the final cost. The full weight and cost will be determined at processing time.
When your order is ready for pickup we will send an invoice and arrange pickup of your meat.
Chefs, Restaurants & Retail Stores: Please contact us for our Wholesale Availability and Price List.
