The “hard-to-believe quality” from Schmitz
We stand by our word to bring man and animal into harmony with nature. To this end, we have brought together all those responsible in the production chain, from rearing the animals to the product range, at one table: farmers, animal lovers, butchers and, of course, the wholesale and retail outlet. We did not bring in our pigs, but of course, we went to their stables…
We take responsibility!
Our animals come from owner-managed farmer families for whom it is understood that the manure produced during pig farming is not scattered indiscriminately over the fields. The nutrient balance can prove this.
We avoid unnecessary transport!
The transportation of a pig never takes more than four hours. We want the animals to feel as little stress as possible.
We produce transparently!
Our Schmitz farmer will be happy to show you his farm, on the Internet or in person on site!
We set ourselves for a species-appropriate attitude!
The small piglets are born free. This means that their mother is neither detained nor confined to a small area. Thus, nothing stands in the way of health and care for their offspring. Our sows do not receive hormones to regulate their pregnancy. We trust in nature. During the suckling period, we provide the right temperate of their nest. The piglets live in a covered piglet nest with a microclimate and straw to build their own nest. After the suckling period we all the pigs a perfect stable construction: lying and rooting areas with a lot of straw, separate feeding and excrement areas and a run outdoors or an open stable front. This always ensures a good climate and an outside view.
In addition, as lovingly as our pigs are treated when they grow up, the extraordinary sausages and hams produced by GS Schmitz are produced traditionally and by hand. With us you get happiness that one can see, touch and taste. Convince yourself!
