 Suckling pigs

A true paddock to plate pork experience

 

Schultz Family Farm is a genuine family farm which has been operating for almost 120 years in the same family, with the fifth generation currently growing up on the property, learning and living the simple life.
 
We are passionate about preservation of heirloom varieties and the preservation of local traditional food products and culinary traditions.
 
Our animals are managed with ethical care, outdoor and on pasture, with minimal intervention and antibiotics used only where absolutely necessary. Our cattle are pasture raised and our pigs enjoy a feed which is almost entirely grown on site, which provides a flavour or ‘terroir’ unique to the Schultz Farm.
 
We value traditional techniques of farming and are proud of our collection of farm equipment and machines used by the family, which document a unique continuous history of agricultural technology from horse drawn & hand tools through to modern equipment.
