Thrive Market partnered with a small family farm in Georgia called White Oak Pastures for the premium, pasture-raised pork offered in its meat and seafood program. On this rural farm, the pigs root and forage throughout the year, eating mostly acorns, nuts, and grass. Sadly, most hogs are not raised this way. Most pork producers keep pigs confined to small, muddy pens. Along with unnatural grain-based diets, these animals are often fed antibiotics and hormones to help fatten them up. At Thrive Market, we’re pushing back against these practices by sourcing pasture-raised pork from ethically-raised pigs. White Oak Pastures also uses rotational grazing on its farm, which helps improve the health of the soil. This method means hogs cycle through different plots of land, helping to encourage regrowth and maximize the soil’s water absorption.
Thrive Market Pasture-Raised Pork Standards
Here’s why our pasture-raised pork, sourced from rural Georgia, meets our high standards at Thrive Market:
- No antibiotics or hormones: Antibiotics and hormones are stored in animal fat, and you don’t want them in your bacon!
- Nutrient-dense diets: Our hogs forage on plants and nuts, never grain- or soy-based feed.
- Eco-friendly farming: Rotational grazing methods nourish the soil for future generations of happy hogs.
- Pigs are Certified Humane: Our Hogs are also Step 5 in the Global Animal Partnership, an animal welfare food labeling program.
