About Spragg’s Meat Shop
Spragg’s Meat Shop is a family-owned and operated business located in Rosemary, Alberta. Greg and Bonnie Spragg raise hogs, process, and market their pork products direct to Albertan consumers. Spragg’s works hard to produce the best pork for Albertans, from the day the pigs are born, to the day the pork chops are cut, bacon is smoked, and the roast is marinated. The Spragg family hopes that you get as much enjoyment eating their pork as they do getting it to your table.
Today, customers can count on Spragg’s to use low-stress farming practices while providing the freshest free-range pork products in all of Alberta.

Pigs love the outdoors. They live to go out to pasture, root around in the fresh grass for their favourite, most tender pieces and dig up mud. This is the essence of being a pig. When spring finally rolls around, we are more than ready.
