From birth to harvest, Bruce Steele single-handedly cares for his Mangalitsa herd from his home and farm in Buellton, California.
A heritage breed raised entirely on pasture, Winfield Farm Mangalitsas are never given antibiotics or GMO feed. Instead, pigs enjoy barley with pumpkin and squash grown organically on the farm. All pigs going to market are finished on acorns, walnuts, and almonds (when available)—a diet nearly identical to the famed Spanish “Pata Negra” pigs, renowned for their “Jamon Iberico de Bellota”.
At Winfield Farm, every animal is given the respect, attention, and individualized care they deserve.
Located on the edge of the Sacramento River, Rancho Llano Seco is home to 6th-generation family farmers and ranchers.
Inspired by a holistic approach, pigs are not only free from antibiotics and growth hormones, they're also confinement-free with continual access to open pastures. Exclusively fed GMO-free vegetarian grains and legumes, pigs are cared for with best practices certified by Global Animal Partnership.
Joining forces with conservation groups and US Fish & Wildlife, Llano Seco Ranch works to restore native grasslands, wetlands, oak savannas and riparian forests in order to preserve and grow the local diversity of plants and animals.
