Berkshire pork, also known as Kurobuta pork, makes the best ham. Uncured, fully-cooked, and ready-to-eat, our ham is naturally smoked over applewood without nitrates, nitrites, phosphates, or artificial fillers, and is seasoned with sea salt and raw cane sugar. The Berkshire hogs are raised on pasture, with no antibiotics or hormones, by a cooperative of small farms dedicated to humane and sustainable methods.

Our boneless ham steak is cut from a Berkshire ham and at 8 ounces is the perfect serving for one. The fully-cooked steak is versatile and ready for any variety of recipes and can be simply pan-seared until browned and heated through.

Just like our other hams, it comes from Berkshire-breed pork, also known as Kurobuta pork, renowned for great taste and tenderness. Because of the marbling typical of the breed, we don't need to inject our hams with dubious ingredients to boost their moisture and texture.

Instead, following age-old techniques, we rub salt and sugar on the boned-out shank or butt of a hog and then smoke it over real applewood chips. There are no artificial flavors or liquid smoke, and no nitrates, nitrites, or phosphates used to make this ham. After it's smoked, we slice the ham into convenient steaks ready for your cooking needs.

Ham steak is great with red-eye gravy, or glazed and heated, and is easy to serve for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

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 raise 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.

*USDA regulations prohibit the use of hormones in pork.

Ham steaks are fully cooked and ready to eat. They can be diced and used in recipes, but the simplest method is to simply pan sear the ham steak in a hot pan, about 3-5 minutes on each side. Once it is browned and heated, set ham aside and add flour to the hot pan of drippings to make a pan sauce. Use wine, Bourbon, or the liquid of your choice. If you use coffee, you will get red-eye gravy, a popular and tasty sauce for a ham steak.
