Mountain Crest Farm is a small family farm where Bob, Cindy, and Sarah try to live a self sufficient life. Part of that is raising our own meat, and we chose to raise Large Black Hogs as a part of that. Our first pig raised to slaugnter went to the abattoir mid-February 2016, and our choice of the LBH breed was vindicated with the first mouthful of pork. After the first bite the reaction from the very non-demonstrative Cindy was, "Wow! This doesn't taste like pork...It tastes like a really good steak!" We raise registered Large Blacks from our Daisy line sow Daisy, and our Super line boar Roscoe. We also raise Large Black/Berkshire hybrids from the same boar and our Berkshire gals Porkchop (originally destined for the abattoir, but we decided she was good enough to breed), Rose, and Violet. Mountain Crest Farm feeds 100% GMO-free feed.
