    Additional Information

    The old breeds are the tastiest; that’s why our farmers raise heritage hogs, including Berkshire and Duroc breeds. These hogs are not suited for industrialized farming, so they've been left to small producers using old-fashioned methods. 

    That’s great news for us, because heritage pork has a richer, distinctive flavor, and softer, more palatable fat, than any commodity pork out there. Try it and you’ll understand why chefs are so keen to source heritage pork for their menus.

    Start here, with heritage pork baby back ribs. So tender the ribs can go from raw directly to the grill.

    Spice them how you like them, keep the heat low, and you will be rewarded in under 2 hours with lip-smacking ribs. Of course, you can simply smoke these ribs and use your favorite barbecue sauce.

    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 cooperative of about a dozen family farms in Missouri at the foot of the Ozark Mountains raises both Berkshire and cross-breed heritage hogs, 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 Pork

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