Giesbrecht Aldergrove

The Giesbrecht Farm is a large wonderful pasture located in Aldergrove BC, where 70 pigs eat and wonder freely around the land. Brian, the owner and farmer, cares deeply about his work and puts a lot of effort into it. He organizes the farm and nurtures the animals like they are his own family. The various breeds of hogs that live with him include Duroc, Tamworth and Berkshire.

To provide a high living quality for the pigs, Brian makes sure that they are eating well. In fact, Brian was a professional horse trainer for 25 years. When he bought the farm in 1993, he decided to raise his pigs the same way he raised the high performing racehorses.

Specifically focusing on their diet, which primarily consists of assorted nuts, alfalfa hay, and the overflow produce from grocery stores. Feeding them the overflow produce from markets is also a sustainable way to reduce waste in the food industry. This abundant wholesome diet gives the pigs extremely well marbled fat that is soft and buttery in the mouth. The flavor is far more superior to any pork on the market.

Trevor Bird: "It is guaranteed to be one of the best pork you will ever taste."
