Raven & Boar is a family owned farm in Northern Columbia County. Each small herd of heritage breed pigs are raised with care on open pasture and forest.
Ruby and Sather Duke founded Raven & Boar in 2009, the farm started with the simple idea of finding a better way to feed their own family. The farm has grown to supplying meat and produce to restaurants throughout the Berkshires, Hudson Valley and NY metro area and Boston metro area as well as locally through farmer’s markets ( GROWNYC ) in New York City and New York State. Hudson Valley Charcuterie produces small batch artisanal product lines of charcuterie, sausages , whole cuts, and cured smoked meats exclusively from our own pigs raised here at Raven & Boar Farm.
Raven & Boar’s pigs are fed whey soaked grains, grass, vegetables, fruits and naturally foraged roots and acorns. We partner with the local cheese producers to use the whey from their cheese production as a source of food for our pigs (in the tradition of Italian pig farmers). The pork from pigs fed whey has a unique flavor and texture, is naturally more marbled, and is especially excellent for charcuterie.
Raven & Boar seeks to continue partnerships with local businesses to not only create a delicious product but to provide high quality meat to local residents and restaurants.

From Edible Manhattan
"The Upper West Side native and former Brooklynite left the city with her husband more than a decade ago, ultimately launching family farm Raven & Boar upstate in East Chatham. There, they raise heritage-breed pigs on forest and open pasture. Restaurateurs quickly noted the quality of their pork, with chefs at iconic spots like Blue Hill and Gramercy Tavern calling in orders."
