Situated in the picturesque Maluti Mountains of Zastron in the Orange Free State, Boomplaats farm practices holistic farming and is the very first farm in the whole of South Africa to produce organically certified cattle, sheep, pigs and chickens.
No fungicides, pesticides, herbicides, hormones or antibiotics means the meat is healthy for you. They supply Johannesburg, Pretoria and around Gauteng.
“We create living soils, lush pastures, happy animals and vibrant humans!”
My name is Akim Riemer; I am a Pork-smith in search of the holy grail of the pork chop.
As a pork-smith I practice the art of artisanal pork husbandry, a holistic philosophy guided by nature, bound by the mantra “no stress at death”. To achieve this pigs have to be slaughtered at the place of birth and with smoke and mirrors you can, on a small herd of 150 pigs, harvest with zero stress-IT’S POSSIBLE and revolutionary!
To make it sustainable the concept “artisanal allotment pork club” has been born, a collective and legal approach for people to be accountable to the meat they eat. Enshrined in the constitution under the bill of rights is the freedom of belief so if you are a meat eater, and are of the belief that the animal must not suffer, cannot be tortured, and was allowed to follow its natural behavior before its slaughtered with respect and zero stress we invite you to contact us to find out more.
If you wish to see us in person and get to know more about our collective sharing approach for sustainable pork then please come see us this Saturday at Kommetjie Primary schools market for the fund raiser “walk for water” where we will have a stand selling fresh produce, eggs, lard soap and sceletium all from our farm from 9h-15h. Look out for the man in the black skirt…….
Do we wait for the laws to change or do we bend them so they change faster? Whatever you decide we all know the luxury of doing nothing has passed!
Seen on the pictures: fat neck chops traditionally brined and green cured then smoked with French oak and bay leaf they go by the loving name “banters orgasm”.
