Pastured Pork – From Farm to Fork
We are excited to announce our next event here at the farm. Each year, we pasture and finish about 40 pigs. These pigs provide the organic pork for our CSA shares, retail sales and our own table.
On Sunday, November 9, Chef Dustin Allen of Edge restaurant in Peoria will join us here at the farm to present a class explaining how to properly divide a hog into the various cuts like pork chops, roasts, etc. This will be demonstrated on our own pastured organic hog. The hog will be prepared at Bittner's Locker prior to the event and then half the hog will be used for the class.
Following the class, we'll be serving a late afternoon picnic style lunch using our own organic pork and vegetables
For more information, including how to order online or by mail and the lunch menu, see our Pastured Pigs – From Farm to Fork page.

Broad Branch Farm is a chemical free farm located in north central Illinois. Since 1998, our family has been committed to producing clean, delicious local food for our community. Our growing practices surpass USDA organic standards for everything we produce – vegetables, chickens, eggs, beef, and pork. Not only is our food produced with the most environmentally sound growing practices, it also tastes really good. Every year, customers are amazed at how good real food can taste. It’s the soil, the way we care for it, the nutrients and the focus on building soil life that produces food like you’ve never tasted. Food with local farm energy! We firmly believe in the power of local organic food to nourish us, keep us healthy and protect our environment.
Our farm’s seasonal vegetables, pastured meat and eggs are marketed June - November through our CSA program. That’s 6 months of eating local food! Your family can purchase a share of vegetables, meat and/or eggs and we offer a very flexible delivery schedule.
