When pigs are raised on pasture, with access to natural forage and plenty of sunshine, their meat and fat is richer in micronutrients, particularly fat-soluble vitamins E and D, as well as minerals like selenium. As monogastric animals, like humans, pigs make vitamin D in their skin and in their fat when they’re exposed to sunlight, making pasture-raised pork particularly rich in vitamin D.
Producers who raise pigs on pasture tend to choose heritage breeds, many of which are in danger of extinction as they’re poorly adapted to confinement operations. Instead, small farms choose heritage breeds that are singularly adapted to the environment of the farm. By raising diverse heritage breeds, producers of pasture-raised pork not only preserve a legacy of farming and culture, but also help to ensure biodiversity.
