This is the pork you’ve been hearing about. Heritage Berkshire pork is revered by chefs nationwide. Its lineage is impeccable, dating back 300 years in England, and it has extraordinary marbling and rich taste. In Japan, where it is known as Kurobuta, Berkshire pork has attained a prized status rivaling that of Kobe beef.
Our six-pound Berkshire pork loin roast is ideal for feeding a hungry crowd, and is superb when grilled, roasted or stuffed. Pair the pork with fresh, seasonal vegetables—grilled peaches or fresh tomatoes tossed with basil in the summer, caramelized pears or apples cooked in maple syrup in the winter and fall. For a super easy preparation, rub the roast with mustard and olive oil and then pack on your favorite combo of chopped, mixed herbs—rosemary, thyme, parsley, sage, oregano.
Our heritage breed hogs are happy hogs raised by a Midwestern cooperative of small, family-run farms without any antibiotics, hormones* or animal by-products ever used. They are raised on pasture, with access to shelter, grain feed and water, and are allowed all their natural rooting and social behavior.
