Wachtel Station, Roggen, CO

“The Wachtel Station farm is a farm named after and located on the site of a former post station called “Wachtel” which operated more than 100 years ago.  The farm has been in the family for more than half a century. If you have never experienced Berkshire pork, you owe it to yourself to try Wachtel Station Berkshire pork!”

Greg and Janeanne Smith are 4th generation Coloradoans who farm dryland wheat and raise 100% purebred Berkshire swine southeast of Roggen, Colorado.  Wachtel Station pigs are 100% purebred American Berkshire, which are widely known for flavor, tenderness and quality eating experience.  The BIGGEST determinant of pork tenderness is surprisingly the Ph (acidity) of the meat. Ph is determined wholly by genetics, there are genetic markers among heritage breeds that make for higher Ph pork that is more tender. The cattle industry identified the “tenderness genetics” years ago, and some heritage hog breeders are doing the genetic testing now.  Greg Smith and his family at Watchtel Station are at the forefront of this research. Greg is on the Board of the American Berkshire Association and has the best pool of premium Berkshire hogs around. They live and breed in his pastures in Roggen, Colorado.  The Smith’s raise their hogs with the utmost care and responsibility and feed only a natural corn and soybean-based diet.  The hogs are not fed additives, antibiotics, or hormones…EVER!
