    Sylvanaqua Sticker

    6 is the number of pigs we started out with way back in 2013. Our herds now fluctuate between 50 - 90 hogs on the farm at any one time.

    For $6, you get a 3" sticker to plant on the back of your car, the top bar of your bike, or the lid of your laptop, and let the world know that you support a sustainable future in food.

    Gifts from the Forest

    We'll send you a tasty sampler of the products coming from our food forests, which will include a small 4oz sleeve of prosciutto or capicola, and a small bag of polenta from our indigenous gardens.

    The only catch is... there's a wait. We're not doing our production gardens until next year, and the charcuterie you'll be getting are starting their year-long hang this August, so you won't be getting your reward until the Fall of 2020.

    "Clever Girl" Ossabaw Tee

    Ossabaw Island Hogs are the signature animal of Sylvanaqua Farms. Small, wild-looking, nearly feral, and incredibly intelligent, they have an uncanny ability to not only figure out the weak spots in fences and other barriers, but to pick the least convenient time to do so.

    Chris is known to mutter "clever girl..." upon discovering these pigs escaped from their paddocks, as Robert Muldoon uttered before meeting his untimely end at the hands of an equally clever but far more dangerous Velociraptor in 'Jurassic Park.'

    Our Clever Girl Tee is an homage to this pig, nicknamed "American Iberico" for the excellent charcuterie that results from the pigs' unique fat distribution and musculature.
