Pig in the Patch brand pork--naturally raised by family farmers, conveniently packaged, competitively priced--it's good food that awaits the good cook in all of you!

When you buy Pig in the Patch pork, you help support a tradition of sustainable family farming.  And most importantly, you purchase a fresher, more flavorful meat!
Pig in the Patch brand pork means great tasting, naturally raised pork that comes to you from the kind of farm you'd be proud to call your own.

Pig in the Patch pork is raised on the Nuessmeier family farm, located five miles east of LeSueur and the beautiful Minnesota River Valley.  Five generations of our family have cared for the land and livestock on our farm.  In 1975 it was formally honored as a Minnesota Century Farm.

We, at the
Nuessmeier farm, are dedicated to the craft of farming.  We emphasize careful and humane animal husbandry.  Our animals are hand-fed in free-range pens open to the sun.  We practice a more traditional manner of feeding livestock that favors a balanced ration of grains and legumes, free of growth promoting drugs.  We believe this results in a more nutritious and flavorful meat.

We ask that you pick up your order at Odenthal Meats.  By doing so, you help us keep our costs low and focus our efforts on producing top-quality reasonably priced pork.
