Buckingham Berkshires - buckingham, Virginia
Buckingham Berkshires main goal is to provide their clients with high quality meats. It’s as simple as that. Because of that they go above and beyond the typical pig farm to make sure their pigs are raised like they were supposed to be raised. It may cost them more, but we think you’ll thank them in the end.
Buckingham Berkshire’s farm is located in the heart of Central Virginia, a true farmer’s wonderland! We like to think that their pigs are spoiled. By keeping them in their natural habitat, the forest, their pigs are inherently at ease.
There is no mystery about why their pork tastes so good. It comes down to three simple things:
- Genetics: Berkshires have been selected for meat quality. Centuries have been spent breeding for better tasting pigs and that careful selection has paid off. Since before the time of Oliver Cromwell, Berkshires have maintained a reputation as the best tasting pork, and the breed has continued to focus on that even in the face of industrialization.
- Lifestyle: Their pigs live as absolutely stress free a life as we can manage. They keep them calm, happy, and outside their entire lives.
- Processing: All of their meat is butchered locally to minimize the stress of transportation and allow us to oversee the butchering process. They insist that their animals are treated in a respectful and humane manner. They don’t add water or flavoring solutions to their pork. The superior taste comes from the pig, not from additives.
