Windrift Farms began producing pork in the Uncompahgre Valley in 1979, taking advantage of the high desert climate by growing their pigs in sunshine and fresh air. Because of the small scale of this family run farm their pigs are born in individual farrowing crates, kept with their litter mates and raised in small groups. The Windrift herd is comprised of maternal lines carefully selected for meat quality and pleasant disposition. The animals are fed a mixture of field and sweet corn, soybean meal, vitamins and minerals, specially formulated for each group of pigs depending on their size, age and stage of life. The Windrift practices combine to promote the low stress and excellent health of every animal. Those sent to Sunnyside Meats have never been given antibiotics, steroides or hormones.
