What began as a way for Randy Riviere to pay for his son’s baseball habit and college tuition has become Wilderness Farms, an environmentally conscious farm raising purebred Berkshire hogs in the crisp mountain air of Enumclaw, Washington. Not only that, Randy’s pork is the favorite for Renee Erickson’s Seattle-based restaurants, Bar Melusine and Walrus and Carpenter.

“The meat to fat ratio is so beautiful on Randy’s pork. It tastes really clean,” says Bobby Palmquist, executive chef at the Walrus and Carpenter. “I would eat Randy’s pork raw in a heartbeat.”

Nestled just west of the Cascade Mountains in the cold Northwest, Randy and his family needed a tough breed that thrives on the mountain woodlands. Heritage breed Berkshire hogs are hardy in tough environments with good dispositions and high quality meat, so they began to raise a Berkshire herd.

Randy’s previous life as a wildlife biologist allowed him to raise hogs that maximize the environmental potential of the land while preserving the space for migratory wildlife. It’s a full family operation, with his son Zack doing the everyday feeding while working on his degree at the University of Washington. Randy’s wife, Dawn, also works on the farm, often managing the land while covered head to toe with mud.

Because Randy and his family believe in respecting their animals’ natural instincts and minimizing stress, the hogs themselves enjoy rooting through the land in social groups that often consist of their littermates.

In addition to grazing on Timothy, Orchard Grass, Red Clover, BF trefoil, vetch, and other grasses, these hogs enjoy a locally raised, hand-mixed barley grain year-round with absolutely no hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. Randy even mixes his feed by hand using a traditional recipe from the 1940s.

Jesie and Matthew Lawrence built their farm and family simultaneously. A desire to gain food transparency for their loved ones, and the community at large, inspired the couple to start Marble Creek Farmstead. An hour’s drive from Birmingham, the Sylacauga, Alabama farmstead, has a full range of products. In addition to growing fruits and vegetables, the farmstead is also home to chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, goats, sheep, and grass-fed cattle.

The Lawrence’s focus on hogs rests primarily with Berkshire and Tamworth breeds. The Berkshire has been called the "Kobe of Pork," for its marbling, tenderness and rich flavor. The Tamworth is known as the "Bacon Pig" for the ability to grow mass without having too much fat. Marble Creek Farmstead is also home to Large Black and Red Wattle hog breeds. With room to roam in pastures of clover, rye, bluegrass, buttercups, and flowers, the hogs instinctually root around, eating grasses, dirt, and grubs. The pigs also have access to spent brewer’s grain, fermented grains of wheat, barley and sorghum from nearby brewers, as well as a supplemental non-GMO feed.
