Intro


Our mission is to offer sustainable, happily raised food to our community with extremely little to no fossil fuels used from farrow to plate.

Nestled away in lush, vibrant rolling hillsides of Ashland, Oregon, resides the home of Uproot Ashland, a 28 acre heritage pig farm.

Our free range operation reintroduces specific and unique breeds of heritage pork to the local community. We thoughtfully picked such varieties as the Large Black, Red Wattle, Gloucestershire Old Spot and Tamworth breeds to pair their instinctive foraging behavior including uprooting acorns and free exploration of the nutrient rich raw land.

This organic way of life provides a nutritious boost of vitamins, such as Omega 3 fatty acids and contributes a significant level of healthy unsaturated fats found in a balanced diet. The distinct richness, bold physical appearance and flavor of our pork depicts the rogue tale rooting back centuries from its European and Chinese descent.
