In 2008 an organic farmer, Bob Herdegen stopped by Amaltheia and said he was wanting to get out of the pig business. He offered to bring his sows and feeder pigs so that we could start our own pork business. We were interested in having pigs so that we could utilize the whey from our cheese making process. Over the years, Bob offered his knowledge on raising pigs which was extremely helpful in the building of the pork production at Amaltheia.
