The flavor and texture of pasture-raised pork bacon is hard to beat! Bacon is cut from the belly of the animal. Our bacon is smoked and uncured. It can be cooked in a pan on the stovetop, or in the oven. Try it as a breakfast side, in a BLT, or to accent a pasta dish, soup, or stew! Be sure to save the fat to add that bacon flavor to other cooking projects.
Our pigs are raised on pasture all summer, without hormones or antibiotics. We buy in a small herd of piglets each May that is made up of a mix of heritage breeds, including Tamworth and Old Spot. We feed our pigs non-GMO grain, but being raised outside means they also forage for tubers, roots, berries, grubs, and more. From May to November, we rotate the pigs into new paddocks, allowing them to explore and express their natural rooting behaviors, while also fertilizing those areas with manure.
