    Meet the porterhouse. This little-known cut is redefining the pork chop with its thickness, heft and full flavor. Try it and you’ll see why.

    Additional Information

    What the T-bone steak is to beef, the porterhouse chop is to pork. Chefs have known it for years, but the cut is not commonly available to the public.

    We’re changing that by offering this thick and impressive piece of pork to the home cook.

    What’s all the fuss about? Everyone knows that cooking meat on the bone adds flavor, and that the silky texture of tenderloin is especially satisfying. The porterhouse offers the best of the both worlds. Plus, each juicy, thick slab of gorgeous Berkshire pork weighs in at about a pound.

    This is pork at its finest, with extraordinary marbling and a distinctive, rich taste that is typical of the Berkshire breed.

    Because this chop is so hefty, you’ll want to sear it off and finish in the oven. If you grill it, start it over direct heat and then move it to the cooler part of the grill to finish.

    Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. We respect our place in the food chain, and see farmers as true stewards of the land and environment. This is why we build real relationships with our farmers, and work only with those who respect nature and focus on the best animal welfare practices.

    Our Berkshire hogs are happy hogs, raised by a cooperative of small farms in Missouri at the foot of the Ozark Mountains. This group of about a dozen family farms raises Berkshire and cross breeds, which we refer to simply as “heritage.”

    The hogs are fed on pasture, with access to water and supplemental grain consisting of corn, soybeans and rolled oats. No pesticides, animal by-products or fishmeal are allowed. The majority of the farms are sustainable “circle farms” that grow and grind their own feed for the pigs. Families of pigs are left together, to forage and frolic outdoors in pasture land. The indoor spaces offer at least 15 square feet of space per animal, and sows are never put in gestation crates.

    The cooperative is strict about banning the use of antibiotics and hormones* on each farm and limiting the number of hogs the farms raise. They seek to add another farmer to the cooperative before they add more pigs to any one farm, making the process more humane for all concerned. They are paid a premium for their humanely-raised pork, making the small family farm a profitable business, and proving that there might be a future in the old breeds after all.

    Our berkshire pork

    Sometimes the old ways are the best ways. Our Berkshire hogs are raised humanely, on family farms dedicated to traditional methods. That’s why this heritage-breed pork is meltingly tender, spectacular in flavor and nothing like the pale, commodity pork so common on today's market.
