    Be the hero of the backyard barbecue with deeply flavorful Berkshire pork. Two boneless “Boston butt” pork shoulders should be plenty to feed the hungry mob.

    Additional Information

    Our boneless Berkshire pork shoulder is juicy and meaty, with plentiful marbling. That’s a good thing when you slow roast in the oven or the smoker – all that fat makes for meltingly tender pork.

    You can marinate pork shoulder, then cook as you wish. Pork shoulder is the champion cut of the competitive barbecue circuit; smoked, shredded and slathered with sauce.

    Berkshire pork is revered by chefs for its extraordinary marbling and distinctive taste. You may have heard of the Japanese term for these pigs: Kurobuta. Call it what you will, Berkshire pork is known for its richness, dark color and mind-blowing porky flavor.

    Once you try Berkshire pork you’ll know why it has attained prized status like that of Kobe beef in Japan. It’s just that good.

    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.
