Q: How are your LiberTerre hogs raised? I would like to know if they have been mistreated in anyway.
A: All of our products are sourced from farmers that take extra care in raising their animals. Ultimately, our goal is to provide our customers with the superior taste of meat that has been traditionally raised, fed a healthy diet and treated well all along the way!
Our LiberTerre hogs are raised in adherence to the National Farm Animal Care Council (NFACC) and have met all of the requirements of the Canadian Quality Assurance (CQA), which is an on-farm quality and safety assurance program. As a result, we have adopted the best raising, processing and transporting practices to ensure both food safety and animal care.
Our hogs are also fed a complete vegetarian diet free from animal by-products and includes a number of locally grown grains such as, barley, wheat, corn, rye and canola. We can also guarantee that our hogs are raised without the use of antibiotics and are free from beta-agonists such as, ractopamine.
