Here at Arcadian Acres we are proud to offer Red Wattle Hogs, which are acclaimed by the Arc of Taste and Slow Food movement as the best and most flavorful pork. We offer all cuts individually skin, fat, and bone on; as well as all oddities (organs, snout, ear, tail, etc), and all fat and skin. If you’re looking for a bulk order to fill your freezer, you may purchase a half or whole hog at a discounted price per pound based on hanging weight, then pay the butcher to process it to your exact specifications. We farrow in an open barn with deep bedding straw, NOT a crate. After weaning, pigs are rotated on pasture and finished in woods filled with oak, hickory, beech, walnut, sassafras, and pawpaw trees which provide a multitude of finishing flavors. Pigs are also fed a small supplement of soy-free certified organic grains and minerals, as well as locally sourced non-certified organic whey in addition to their natural forage. Feeders and breeders are sometimes also available upon request. We raise Randall Cattle Rose Veal, a truly rare and wonderful treat. Orders for this exquisite taste of American history fill up fast, sometimes requiring the “reserve” of the next available animal. Raised on pasture with their mothers and the rest of the Randall herd till weaning time (around 10 months). This is NOT the poorly kept, white veal people are used to. Keeping them on pasture with their mothers and the herd, they get the full happy socialized lives cows should have, as well as the well rounded nutritional intake of both milk AND grass. The iron from the grass turns the meat a rosy color, hence the name rose veal. We raise heritage eggs and chicken. Our layers are free to roam the yards, pastures, and woods. All have not had any chemical usage if any, in over 30 years. They are let out and fed a small supplement of soy-free certified organic grains and mineral mix. Mixed sampler dozen eating eggs are available for $6/doz when in stock. The roosters follow the pigs and cows around the fields and woods until they are large enough to process for the table and are as well fed a small supplement of certified organic and soy free feed, as well as table and garden scraps. Whole plucked chickens are also available for $6/lbs, this includes the neck, lungs, heart, and liver separate. We process them ourselves here at the farm using the most humane methods we have found in our extensive research.
