Andrew Crush, Spring House Farm, Washington D.C.
Farmers are the very heart of the Cochon555 tour. As part of our new Spotlight series for guests past and present, we take you behind the scenes for a Q&A with those who provide the beautiful and delicious pigs for our competition. Meet Andrew Crush of Spring House Farm from our Washington DC event.
What is your farming philosophy?
Our mission is to operate a sustainable, ecologically friendly farm dedicated to providing the finest foods that our earth can naturally produce.
What is it that intrigues you about heritage breed pigs?
Our Heritage Pigs are a joy to have around the farm. They are easy to handle and are extremely hearty.
What is your favorite pork cut and way to cook it?
My favorite meat on our pigs is the Jowl. It is by far the juiciest cut.
The root of all Cochon555 events is the community of small and family farmers whose sacrifice and talent results in the heritage breed pigs we celebrate. For more information about Andrew and Spring House Farm, please visit www.SpringHouse.Farm.
