    If you love pork, then you have to try porcelet. This milk-fed piglet offers exquisite, tender and moist meat – the stuff pork dreams are made of. The bone-in loin can be butchered into pork chops and roasts, or de-boned for the perfect porchetta.

    Additional Information

    Generally the leanest and most tender part of the pig, the loin spans the area between the shoulder and back legs. This primal cut is the source of some favorites: the pork chop (both rib and loin), pork loin and tenderloin roasts, not to mention baby back ribs. This porcelet loin comes with the rind on, which means that porchetta you make will have a crispy layer of pork crackling all over it.

    Available exclusively at D’Artagnan, porcelet is a favorite among our chef clients and is sure to be a hit with home cooks.
    What’s so special about it? The pig, above all animals, tastes the most like what it eats. So when piglets live on milk alone, they produce the most succulent pork imaginable.

    The milk-fed pig, called cochon de lait in French, is a long-standing tradition on dairy farms. Our porcelet is an improvement on that tradition. The young pigs are raised entirely on a proprietary milk formula (served warm) that is designed to nourish the pigs and put fat in all the right places.

    Even the most succulent of suckling pig has only a 17% moisture content, which cannot compare to the 30% moisture content of porcelet. And the porcelet grows larger, so there is more delicious pork to be enjoyed.

    The milk-fed pig, called cochon de lait in French, is a long-standing tradition on dairy farms. Excess milk, unwanted skim milk and whey are common on such farms, and pigs are more than willing to eat it all.

    Exclusively raised for D’Artagnan by a family-owned farm in Quebec which follows European protocols to ensure remarkable results. The Yorkshire breed piglets live in spacious barns and are nourished in a unique feeding program: they are fed a proprietary milk solution while maintaining a natural nursing rhythm. This diet allows them to thrive and grow for longer periods of time, growing larger than the average suckling pig, while maintaining tender texture. This is why porcelet de lait offers exquisite pork unrivaled by any other.

    Our porcelet

    Porcelet is to pork as veal is to beef. Our milk-fed piglets are raised humanely on a family farm, and fed with a proprietary formula that produces the most tender and moist pork imaginable. There is nothing else like it on today’s market.
