    Additional Information

    Heritage breeds like our Berkshire hogs are being recognized anew for their unique qualities. The pork from these old world pigs is revered by chefs for its extraordinary marbling and distinctive, rich taste. And now it can be your go-to pork.

    The Milanese cut comes from the end of the six-rib rack. The chine bone is removed, and the rib bone is left attached. This is a classic example of a butcher's cut: one too irregular to be sold in the case. Just as tasty as the more perfectly formed chops from the middle of the rack, this chop often served the butcher's family.

    Those who choose the butcher's cut must be aware that the two chops in the package vary in size. They are not a matched set from the middle of the rack.

    Whatever size, these pork chops are ideal for quick weeknight cooking, or to grill outdoors for a weekend dinner. The pork is so tasty it doesn’t need much embellishment. However, Milanese is also a style of cooking, in which veal or pork is pounded thin and breaded. Our chef clients often pound these chops around the bone, leaving it attached for presentation on the plate. It's a tempting option.

    *USDA regulations prohibit the use of hormones in pork.

    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 raise 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.
