Food Alliance Certification, Non-GMO Project Verified. Heritage genetics. Soy & corn FREE!
Our pork is produced by the FIRST sustainable hog operation in the United States to earn Food Alliance Certification (requiring adherence to new and stricter guidelines for sustainable farming); pioneers of humane animal husbandry and dietary practices. They were also the first US Non-GMO Project Verified ranch. Leaders in both movements, they have created a unique and consistently tasty pork program that has proven both sustainable and scalable. The pigs enjoy abundant open living space and fresh water access. Hoop houses with fresh straw bedding provide shelter from the elements and predators. The superior quality of their pork's fat, flavor, and performance is a 100% corn and soy-free diet combined with generations of exacting genetic selection from a long line of Berkshire–Landrace/Chester/Yorkshire crosses. The pigs are raised on fine European grains — a Non-GMO Project Verified mix of wheat, barley, peas, flax seed, and naturally occurring minerals.
We love these pigs for their explosive flavor. The meat has a brightness and natural acidity. Its longer grain delivers an incredible mouthfeel, akin to “white beef”. Lightly marbled with a hard white fat cap, our pork is ideal for cooking, curing, and roasting. The pork's signature fat cap—resulting from that small grain finish—is wondrously clean, and doesn't oxidize or grease out like fat containing corn or soy. These hogs are a charcutier’s dream.
