Danish term or phrase: skovgris
Can't find this one in Gyldendal's. Is it another way of saying 'vildsvin' (wild boar)?

Explanation:
You don't give any context, but it is very probably the opposite of 'burgris' - the market is demanding an alternative to highly intensive 'factory farming'.

But then they are domestic pigs, not wild boar.

I have also seen 'free range'.

They may or may not qualify as 'organic' (økologiske)
