Melanda Park Free Range Pork

A marriage of breeds all come together to produce a pig that is well suited to the free range environment yet at the same time producing exceptional pork for today's market. Generally sows with their roots coming from heritage breeds are mated with musclier leaner boars to produce a white pig with just a little more fat than normal, keeping the meat moist and full of flavour when cooked. All our pigs are born, raised and kept their entire lives out doors in the free range environment, where they are free to exhibit natural behaviour's like rooting, wallowing and interacting with other pigs. They are pasture raised, meaning they have access to pasture 365 days a year and opportunity to indulge in the finer flavours of life like organic potatoes and grubs they dig up.

Our pigs have never seen a farrowing crate or a sow stall, instead they are given a large hutch full of straw with stoppers running around the inside to protect the piglets and they are free to come and go any time they like. They are not feed antibiotics or growth promoters, but instead given a natural diet of grains, pastures and vegetables. they generally grow slower and the meat is more flavoursome because of it. We believe that pigs should not just survive in their environment; they should thrive in their environment..
