Farmer – Nathan Hunt
Hunt Family Farm
Hunt Family Farm LLC is a family owned and operated grain and pasture raised pork farm in Amboy, IN. Father and son Jack and Nathan Hunt represent the fifth and sixth generation of farmers to tend to the operation. Nathan has this to say about Hunt Family Farm:
“What sets our pork apart from everyone else’s is the story behind it. All hogs are born on the farm and are a heritage breed combination of 50% duroc, 25% landrace, and 25% yorkshire bloodlines. Our sows and boars have free range to a 5 acre pasture and breed naturally. Once the farrowed pigs reach 25 pounds, they then have free access to the outdoors at all times. All hog feed is made on-site using a blend of our own corn and a byproduct of cold pressing sunflower seeds for oil from our neighbors, Healthy Hoosier Oil. This is a green pellet that includes the shell, hull, and some remaining oil which provides a non GMO feed additive for our hogs. It gives our pork a unique flavor, while utilizing something that would otherwise be a waste product for Healthy Hoosier Oil. We feel that the combination of all of these factors creates a healthier animal that grows slower and produces a higher quality meat.
We hope you enjoy our pork! We are very proud of what we represent and put our heart and soul into our farm every day.”
