At Bartell Farm, we strive to fill the void in pork production in our area by raising quality finished “happy pork” as well as raising healthy and affordable piglets for our local 4-H and FFA kids. Our pigs spend most of their lives in large paddocks to ensure their happiness. We feed a homemade mixture of peas, garbanzos, wheat and barley as well as supplying grass hay and alfalfa in large paddocks giving them lots of variety. Our pigs spend the majority of their lives out in large paddocks, getting as spoiled as we can. We do farrow in farrowing crates, but litters are moved to stalls after a few days allowing them to have more room. We exclusively sell our finished pork by the package through Community Merchants at 1210 Adams in La Grande and often have piglets available throughout the year. Food list is at the bottom of the page.
We raise quality meat piglets sold at weanlings (8 weeks old) ($125 each) or finished hogs (~300 pounds live) ($3/# Hanging Wt). We only De-worm our meat piglets, no other chemicals given.
Litters born Oct - March are designated as show piglets and are either from our show bred boar (Romeo) or from AI boars. ($175). Piglets are all vaccinated and de-wormed. Premise ID tags and Health certificates available for additional cost.
