Millbrook Free Range Co. is the paddock to plate enterprise of David & Kara Trigg.
Our produce is 'Free to Roam on pasture', on our farm, know as 'Down Below',
Located in the Central Highlands of Victoria at Millbrook, and surrounded by rich volcanic soil, and lush pasture.
It all started when David & Kara relocated 'Loz' a Berkshire sow, and 'Henry' a Berkshire boar to their farm with the intial idea of using the pigs and their progeny to naturally fertilize and rehabilitate the soil, with the idea of providing a 'few good Christmas hams', for family and friends. 'Down Below' is now home to 20 Breeding Sows, which produce 2 litters of piglets each year, which are all born, and grown out, in a natural 'Free Range' environment. 'Down Below', now grows some seriously beautiful pasture, which has been naturally fertilized from Loz, Henry and their prodgeny ... no chemicals, no synthetic fertilizers and natural weed control!!
Commonly asked ... Why Black Pigs .... because Black Pigs, or Heritage Berkshire Pigs, have thick black hair to cope with living in a natural outdoor environment, Black hair protects the pig from the sun and sunburn, and keeps them warm in winter ... perfect for outdoor living
