The Koppies Free-range pig farm is a FarmForAfrica initiative and part of our philosophy to return to a complete natural way of food production.
When we say free-range, we mean the pigs are really free to roam in large, tree shaded, electrified camps. It is exciting to see that pigs are quickly guided by their herd instinct to be a family.
Apart from being hormone and anti-biotic free, free-range pork just tastes better. The free movement and exercise they get from rooting in the grass, causes a distribution of fat through-out the muscles. This distribution of fat makes a world’s difference in the taste. We can tell you about it, but the proof is in the braai.
Our pigs are never caged, not even when they are farrowing. Piglets are born in soft grass beds patiently re-constructed by the mother.
