Moving towards humane pig rearing

I’m an omnivore, but I try to only partake in the meat side of things when the animal has been raised and killed humanely.  When it comes to pigs I’m particularly passionate about only eating pork that is fully free range (not the faking it “bred-free range” version) because I’ve seen what pigs go through on conventional industrial pig farms. So, I was happy to read that the big Australian supermarket chain Coles will be phasing out pork where the sows are kept in tiny pens by 2014.  It still doesn’t meet the free range criteria  and humane criteria by a long stretch. But, it is a start.  I however, will continue to buy my pork and bacon from The Gypsy Pig.
