DUBRETON RUSTIC PORK :
Well Raised : We respect animals’natural behaviours. Our sows have ample freedom of movement and can engage in their natural nesting behaviors with straw. Piglets are weaned at least ten days longer than on conventionall farms, and no growth promoters are used.
Well Treated : Our animals are provided superior living areas and care. They are not kept in crates and enjoy twice the space normally allocated on pig farms in during gestation. Pigs have access at all times to a lying area that is not slatted and is bedded, with straw or sawdust for comfort. Pigs are well fed with a diet free of antibiotics and animal by-products.
Well Prepared : The meat that reaches your plate is the purest anywhere. At our plant, processing is minimal and no preservation agents are used. You’ll recognize the unique quality of duBreton pork by its marbling and uniform colour.

All pigs raised on our farms are born from one of 35 reproducing sows, who live on the grounds to allow the breeders to tend to them. Each gestating sow is raised in a group under a shelter with plenty of straw, while maintaining access to pasture during the summer. Note that the practice of teeth and tail mutilation is forbidden.
Breeders see to the well-being of the pigs and respect their natural behaviors and preferences. The pigs have access to large pasture, where they can graze on young clover and other grass, and practice their innate behavior to grub in the ground. They are free to run, play, and roll around on the ground as they wish, and to do so throughout the entire summer. When it’s cold, the pigs enjoy a large open space, covered with plenty of hay, where they can rest with their peers. In addition, the primary breeding location has natural ventilation and plenty of natural lighting, which allows the animals to follow a natural day cycle.
