low disease, high health
Rawhiti Porks state-of-the-art design and its 'High Health Farm' status means it's in the 95th percentile for disease reduction. All visitors to the farm undergo disease control protocols to keep our herd safe and healthy. Why go to all that trouble? To reduce the number of times our pigs are exposed to anti-biotics or other artificial chemicals.
freedom farmed pork
Lower stress levels mean our pigs live a calmer, more contented life. To further improve the standards of health we use Freedom Farrowing Technology. We refuse to use inhumane practices such as Farrowing Crates, so the mother sows may tend to their young in a more natural way.
