Kaartila Farm


Pork production on the Kaartila farm in Juva started in 1966. Instead of intensive production, Kaartila is working hard to ensure that the pigs live a good and species-specific life. Kaartila pigs are free range piglets born in the Saimaa region. They are allowed to stay with their mothers for longer and grow up in more spacious pens than in a conventional piggery. From the farrowing house, the pigs move to Kaartila at around 10 weeks of age. In Kaartila, the pigs are comfortable, with plenty of space and plenty of stimulation, including balls, short logs, newspapers, cuttings and bedding.
