From pasture to plate: the story of our pastured poultry and forest-raised pork

At Hard Struggle Homestead, located near Frederick, Maryland, we are proud to offer delicious and healthy pastured poultry and forest-raised pork to our local community. As a small-scale, sustainable farm, we are committed to raising our animals in the most humane and environmentally-friendly way possible.

Here are just a few of the benefits of buying pastured poultry and forest-raised pork from Hard Struggle Homestead:

  • Fresher, healthier meat: Our chickens and pigs are raised on a diet of fresh grass, bugs, and other natural foods. This means that their meat is packed with nutrients and has a more flavorful and natural taste than conventionally-raised animals.

  • Supporting sustainable farming: Our pastured poultry and forest-raised pork are raised on rotational grazing systems that mimic the natural behavior of the animals. This allows us to produce meat in a way that is sustainable and good for the environment.

  • Protecting the environment: By raising our animals on pasture and in the forest, we help to preserve valuable grasslands and forests. This is good for the environment and helps to support a healthy and diverse ecosystem.

  • Building community: Buying locally-grown food is a great way to connect with your local farmers and learn more about where your food comes from. It also helps to build a sense of community and support local businesses.

  • Tasting better: Pastured poultry and forest-raised pork are often fresher and more flavorful than conventionally-raised animals. This is because they are allowed to live a more natural life and are not fed a diet of grains and hormones.

At Hard Struggle Homestead, we are proud to be part of the local food movement and we are committed to providing our community with the freshest and healthiest meat possible. We hope that you will consider supporting your local farmers by choosing pastured poultry and forest-raised pork from Hard Struggle Homestead. Your taste buds and the environment will thank you!
