Grain-Free Pork

Raising heritage-breed hogs, naturally G.M.O-Free and grain-free, is the right choice for Rainbow Ranch Farms. A choice we have always included in our farming methodology.

Some hogs have an excellent feed-to-muscle ratio, and are a great source of wholesome nutrition. They make good breeders, excellent mothers, and can be fun to raise. They convert food, to muscle efficiently, and depending on farming protocol, they can be a sustainable source of organic pork.

Hogs require a complete species-specific fodder, to include iron, protein, fat, carbohydrates, amino acids, vitamins (A,E,D,K,B12,B6,C, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Thiamine, Biotin, ), minerals (Calcium, Phosphorus, Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, Sulfur, Iron, Copper, Iodine, Manganese, Zinc, Selenium ,  Their fiber requirements are low, and they do not require added salts. 

It is very important that hogs have enough room to exercise and play, and that they have clean, dry and comfortable housing.


A large heritage-breed, lactating, sow, on Rainbow Ranch Farms will eat from 15-20.lbs of fodder each day. That's a lot of food. Our hogs have free-feeders, which means they have full access to a grain-free, species-specific, highly nutritious fodder 24/7. They are also offered a palatable treat of organic fruit, and vegetables, at least 2-3X daily. 

During the growing season, our hogs are encouraged to graze in our crop-growing areas, root, play and eat fresh from the garden. At the end of the season, the hogs will go through gardens, root, and turn the soil, as well as clean-up any roots, that may have been left behind. 


Our hogs are grown without any antibiotics, no stimulants, no hormones, no de-worming, grain-free, no corn, no soy, no wheat, and G.M.O-Free. They are fed a Certified Organic diet, specifically designed by Rainbow Ranch Farms. Our real-feeds, are made from real food, food that is tested for Non-G.M.O's, and is Grain-Free!

Rainbow Ranch Farms pork is sweet, succulent, wholesome, delicious and tender.  


According to the Merck Veterinary Index, Antibiotics and other chemotherapeutic agents are commonly added to swine diets to promote growth.
