These beautiful Organic Pigs went to market on the 16th of December.  This is the finished product that we strive for.  Of course it was severely cold that morning and it was hard to be out there loading.  The trucker arrived early hoping to beat the expected snow storm.  If you are interested in tasting good pork click on the link :

There were 30 market ready pigs loaded that morning.  That gives us 13 pigs left from the first farrowing group this past spring.  The next groups will be ready for shipping around March 2017.

About Callens Honey Farm

We live on a small family farm located in S.W. Minnesota, near the South Dakota border. The source of our honey is from white and red clover. The honey appears as liquid gold in color. Our honey is extracted using a hand cranked centrifugal force extractor. Then the honey is screened once into a holding container from which we later fill the small honey bottles. We do not heat treat the honey nor add any other ingredients. Pure and natural is our Minnesota honey! What could taste better?
