While it is commonly used to make patties and meatballs or stuffing in beef braciole, there are many other creative ways to use ground pork in your cooking.
For a hearty and satisfying meal, consider making a pork ragu to serve over creamy polenta or gnocchi. Or use ground pork as a base for a rich and flavorful meat sauce for pasta or rice dishes. Combine pork with diced vegetables and seasonings to make stuffed peppers or cabbage rolls.
If you're looking for something a little more adventurous, try using our ground pork as a filling for dumplings or potstickers. Mix ground pork with herbs and spices to make homemade sausage patties or links, or add it to stir-fry dishes for a savory twist. Try it in the zesty Thai salad called larb.
Ground pork can also be used as a topping for homemade pizzas, to accent your favorite vegetables and cheeses.
The possibilities are endless. Don't be afraid to get creative and experiment with different flavors and cuisines to discover new and delicious ways to enjoy this versatile ingredient.
Our mission is to find farmers that share our vision of a more humane and sustainable way of rearing livestock. The cooperative of small family farmers that raises our Berkshire hogs is dedicated to traditional methods, allowing hogs to feed 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 on pasture. 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.
