Video: Regenerative Agriculture: DIY Organic Pig Feed - Our Process!


At Coen Farm we practice Regenerative Agriculture, including blending our own organic pig feed to ensure our pigs are fed only the best healthy, organic, and nutrient dense feed possible. In this video you will learn how we prepare our outstanding pig feed, and why we do it this way. We have always grown and ground our own hog feed on farm so that we can ensure only the most nutrient-dense ingredients make it into the recipe. For the past 6 years we have been slowly transitioning our pig feed mix to include a higher content of dried grasses, legumes and forbs. I will talk about the machinery we use to make the feed, the organic ingredients we use, how we made the transition and why developing grass fed genetics in pigs is critical to the nutrient density of our pork and the sustainability of our farm ecosystem.
