about

Anderson Farms started on the south side of Granville Ohio in 2014 by James and Jess Anderson with a mission to raise the best tasting pork possible in the climate and conditions provided in central Ohio. We have worked tirelessly to find the best old line breeds that produce the best flavor profile in our pork. We are raising our hogs like they did in the 1950s before massive pork producers started modifying the genetics to take all the flavor out, speed up growth rates and increase muscle mass to yield the meat we know as commercial pork now-a-days. We focus our attention on the opposite methods, we take our time with the growth cycle, we dont rush it and we’re not scared of fat cuz fat is flavor. Our bloodlines havnt been touched by modern day genetics, we focus only on really old blood lines. We select slow growing breeds that do well out in the open air and the slow growth method really helps our flavor develop all the way to the bone. 

For years we have raised hogs exclusively for RayRays Hog Pit, but starting in the spring of 2023, we are prepared to sell half hogs, whole hogs and pork cuts directly to consumers. All of our heritage breed hogs are raised outside in the open air, free roaming in fields separated into 2 sections. Section one is our standard hogs that have a diet rich with grain and all the good stuff in the fields. Section two is our hippy hogs which are non-gmo with a grain free diet including the good stuff in the fields plus a proprietary feed blend as a daily supplement ration.

Pat Brown joined our team in 2020 as farm manager and with his expertise we have been able to fine tune our genetics to produce the richest, most flavorful pork we have ever been able to produce since we started.
