What is pastured pork like?

If you’ve never had the pleasure of eating pork from pasture-raised pigs, then get ready for a delightful surprise. Unlike fish oil supplements or kale smoothies, this part of your healthy lifestyle is easy to love. Pastured pork is deeper in color than grocery store pork, less prone to dryness, and far more flavorful. Once you try it, there’s no going back!

Why you need chorizo in your life

Have you ever eaten something so startlingly good that it stands out in your memory forever? The first time we tried the Mexican-spiced sausage that is chorizo, we’d been invited to some friends’ house for pizza. They had made what looked like dozens of gorgeous sourdough pizza crusts, topped them with handfuls of shredded cheddar, sweet bell peppers, and cooked crumbles of chorizo, and baked them on the grill. The result was perfection, and we’re still thinking about it.

But don’t stop with pizza; this flavorful sausage will make fabulous breakfast tacos, any-time-of-day tacos, chilis, soups, fritattas, enchiladas, empanadas, quesadillas—you name it, it can probably be improved by chorizo!

Cooking tips

If you need a high quality protein that can get from the freezer to the table with very little time and trouble, you’re in the right place. Just take the roll of sausage from the freezer, place it in hot water until the packaging loosens, and unwrap it directly into a skillet. Once it’s browned and broken up, it’s ready to transform a few eggs and some corn tortillas into a swoon-worthy dinner.


How our pigs are raised

Pigs in the pasture are some of the happiest animals in the world. They get to spend every day living their piggy dreams: rooting, munching, and napping. We supplement their wild diet of roots, nuts, and plants with a corn-free, soy-free feed mix based on peanut meal. When it’s time to harvest them, we send them to a local, state-inspected butcher for processing. For more information about our farm’s practices, check out Our Standards.
