The Piggery is doing everything they can to create pork that is good for the people, good for the land and good for the pigs, with a focus on minimizing their carbon footprint. They raise heirloom breeds of pigs on pasture & woodland, supplemented with locally-raised GMO-free small grains (barley, wheat, triticale, peas).
Because The Piggery needs plenty of pork while still wanting to give their pigs lots of space to roam, they have partnered up with a few other local producers that also pasture their animals and stay away from antibiotics, hormones, confinement facilities, and G.M.O. feed.

Red Table Meats
Passionately committed to sustainability and transparency, Red Table Meat Co. salumi can be traced from farm to fork, empowering our customers to engage responsibly with their food. Mike Phillips has been working on forming Red Table Meat Co. for perhaps his whole life. Growing up in a small, rural farming community, he saw their struggles and their tireless work. That powerful sense of community never left him. And now, Red Table Meat Co. couples those values with well-made, thoughtfully crafted products and promises, simply: Good Meat Here. Mike has gathered a group of five farms who raise various heritage-breed hogs in small, sustainable settings. He hopes to elevate the regional identity of Minnesota hogs through thoughtfully-crafted, quality salumi.

Smoking Goose Meatery produces handcrafted, flavor packed protein treats. From our Indianapolis meat locker, we make both traditional and unique carnivorous concoctions including slow cured and smoked meats, salumi and fresh sausages.
We cure and smoke the meat from healthy animals raised on independent farms in Indiana and neighboring states by people who care as much about the well being of the animals and the land as they do their own families.
By taking the time to use traditional methods like seam butchering each animal, hand tying every piece, and curing without additional compound nitrates, we tend to every product with the same mindset: respect nature, honor tradition, and get hungry.
