Meet the team - Naturally raised Prairie Pork

The Caretakers

Joanna & Carl Shepherd


I grew up on the family farm raising sheep and cattle and at one time we had pigs. I met my husband Carl when I went to work at an abbatoir. Carl had an opportunity to work in an abbatoir in Manitoba so in 2004 we took the plunge. It was our dream to raise our own livestock and in 2008 we bought our first pigs, a Pure Bred Berkshire Boar and Berkshire Sow and a 1/2 Berkshire sow. So our journey began.  In 2010 we found an acreage in Saskatchewan where we added sheep, livestock guardian dogs, cows, horses, chickens, ducks, geese and at one time we went crazy and had some goats. Even with all these other critters our passion is our pigs. We now have a registered and commercial herd.

We are committed to the conservation of the Berkshire Pigs in Canada.
