RAISING FOOD “THE WAY IT OUGHTA BE”

Over a decade ago, we (Greg & Elisabeth Putney) purchased two piglets from a local farmer with the idea that we were going to raise food for our family “the way it oughta be” raised.  We were starting to grow our family, and wanted to know how our food was being raised.  We found the realities of where most of our food comes from these days startling, and wanted to get back to a more “grass roots” way of farming.  The way it used to be.  “The way it oughta be.”       

Since that first purchase of two piglets a decade ago, word spread about the top notch quality of the pork we raised.  Seeing that other people had the same concerns about the origin of their food as he did, we decided to establish Rise’N’Swine Farm and follow a rotational grazing method of farming.  

This method of farming does not require large investments into machinery and buildings.  It is a smarter and sustainable method of farming, utilizing science and the natural instincts of each animal.  At Rise’N’Swine Farm, each animal has a purpose, which makes them happy, and results in a superior quality product.    

 

HOW IT WORKS

Good Things Come in Small…Batches?

Our farm is not a large scale factory farm, with profit being the only concern.  We take the time to choose the best breeds for the type of land we have.  These animals may be slower growing than those on a large scale farm, but they work together and with the land, happily doing what they do best; and the result is more nutritious and extraordinarily delicious!  You could say we have more of a “small batch” farm operation, delivering the finest beef, pork, chicken, eggs, and honey to our customers.  

We’re Open!

The Farmshop is now open more days and hours!  See the Visit the Farmshop page for up-to-date store hours.  Also, our brand new on-farm butcher shop is now open!  With it, we are able to keep our store stocked with our meats and also offer custom butchering for others. 

BY THE CUT.  Our store has individual retail packages of our pork, chicken, local beef, eggs, and honey available for sale, along with other fantastic items made by local producers.  Please see our Visit the Farmshop page for more information.  Sign up for our e-mails to stay up-to-date on all the exciting news as it is announced, including new, more convenient ways to stock up on your favorite all-natural meats!

BULK BEEF & PORK.  Beef and pork are also offered in bulk.  Beef is available in increments of a quarter cow and pork is available in increments of a half pig.  Beef is typically available each month and pork is available a few times a year.  When available, deposits can be made through our Online Farmshop page.  

Our pork offerings are always our own pasture/forest raised pork.  Our beef selection is sourced from two trusted local farms.  We now offer grain-finished Angus beef grown in Marilla, NY and starting in June 2024 we will be adding grass-fed Jersey beef grown in Arcade, NY.  Both farms produce top quality beef and we are proud to be able to offer them in addition to our own lineup of farm fresh products.  Along with individual cuts offered in our Farmshop, both the grain-finished and the grass-fed beef are available for purchase by the quarter cow consistently throughout the year, cut and packaged right here in our on-farm butcher shop by our skilled butchers.

Jo Anne Y.

“…the chicken, pork, and beef we’ve had in the past doesn’t compare  in the least to Rise’n’Swine Farm’s offerings.  The beef is melt in your mouth awesome, and the chicken tastes like chicken.  The pork is true pork, can’t even describe how good it tastes.  We’re so happy to have found this farm to provide us with our meat!”

Michelle O.

“We purchased a sampler box of pork.  The ham steaks are amazing.  Large portion size and a nice thick cut.  We will definitely be going back for more pork as well as the beef.  I would highly recommend purchasing meat from here!”

CJ B.

“…Purchasing grass fed, ethically raised meats is a no brainer with farms like Rise’n’Swine.  Quality meat for my children to eat and no concerns about recalls and all the other issues surrounding grocery store products.  We’ve got two freezers stuffed full and couldn’t be happier.  The steaks we ate tonight had the most amazing flavor, and the color was just gorgeous.  Can’t wait to try the rest.  We’ll absolutely be returning!”
