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 ground pork in your life

Two words: Gochujang Noodles. (The recipe is written for chicken, but gives pork as an option, and it is a GOOD option.) Just go ahead and print off that recipe right now and stick it to your fridge, then come back and place your order for a good supply of plain ground pork. If you can resist making gochujang noodles with all of it (I can’t), then try mixing it with beef for the juiciest burgers and meatballs, indulge in authentic Chinese dumplings and mapo tofu, or simply stir-fry with vegetables and serve on rice or wrapped in lettuce with your favorite sweet and spicy sauce.

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 vegetables and rice into a savory, satisfying 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.
