Elizabeth Farms is home to the rare Mangalitsa pig. They are their pride and joy. When the pigs are not foraging across the 250 acres of woodlands and pasture, they are fed a non-gmo grain diet which is also supplemented with milk byproducts from their local dairy friends at Oasis at Bird in Hand. The Mangalitsa pig has a higher fat content than typical breeds. Also referred to as the Kobe Beef of Pork, the flavor of Mangalitsa is unbeatable. With deep red meat and pure white marbling, this is the way pork was meant to be!
In 1975, George Rude began raising a handful of quail on two acres of a farm located in the historic village of Griggstown in Princeton, N.J. At that time the property was owned by Peter Josten. By the time George Rude purchased the land from Josten in 1992, the Griggstown Quail Farm had grown to over 65 acres raising pheasants, quail, chickens and, when in season, Mallard and Muscovy ducks, turkeys, and partridge. All the birds were all natural (free of growth hormones and antibiotics) and cage free without overcrowding, a standard George Rude keeps to this day. The farm houses a USDA processing plant which processes poultry five days a week.
