Pastured Berkshire Pork

Alverstoke Farm – biodynamic farming in Paisley, Ontario

Our search for “happy” pork led us to Alverstoke Farm in Paisley, Ontario. We found the farm on the Internet. Since it was on our way to a beach holiday in Kincardine, Ontario, we arranged to stop in for a visit.

We met Ashley and Dave, the owners, and thoroughly enjoyed a farm tour.

They raise free-range, Berkshire Pigs as well as Rideau Archott Sheep using their own feed and biodynamic farming methods.

Their butcher cures the ham and bacon naturally, without any chemicals.

We ordered a pig and a lamb for our freezer.
