WHO ARE WE?

The Pork Palace was started by the Jones Family in 1975 as a FFA and 4-H project. We are located on the Central Coast of California in Gaviota. Our farm is 40 acres of rolling grassy hills nestled in the Santa Ynez Mountains. We’ve been raising fair hogs and market goats since 2000. We have over 50 Berkshire, Hampshire, Duroc, Yorkshire, Spot Chester White, and crossbred sows on the farm.

We started to raise heritage hogs because their meat is different than anything you can buy at the market. The marbling of a Berkshire resembles that of a prime piece of beef. It’s particularly known for its fat and intense flavor. The fat melts through the meat making it luscious and buttery.

Our hogs are processed, cut and wrapped at first class USDA facilities. We offer select cuts, whole, half, and quarter pigs. All of our pigs are raised outdoors where they are allowed to live like pigs. They have plenty of room to run, enjoy the warmth of the sun to dig and wallow in the dirt. Our hogs enjoy a rich diet of spent brewer’s grain from local breweries, excess vegetables from local farms, corn and alfalfa, all of which allows the meat to develop a richer flavor. Our meat is never treated with hormones or antibiotics.

Located just 3 miles south of Buellton and 45 miles north of Santa Barbara on Highway 101 makes us an easy destination. We strive to produce competitive show pigs and goats, excellent breeding stock and great tasting butcher pigs and roasters.
