Porcelet is milk-fed piglet - exclusively available in the U.S. at D'Artagnan- from a small family farm in Quebec that follows European protocols, feeding Yorkshire-breed piglets a proprietary milk formula that allows them to thrive and grow larger than the average suckling pig. They provide the best environment for the piglets, use humane standards and no added antibiotics, hormones, or growth stimulants. Porcelet is the most tender, sweetest pork you’ll ever taste.

Additional Information

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.

There are no two words in the English language more enticing than these: pork belly. Known primarily as the source of bacon, pork belly is more versatile than you might imagine.

And this isn’t just pork belly – it’s porcelet belly. More tender and tasty than any pork belly you’ve known because it comes from milk-fed piglets.

Score the skin, then pan-sear on all sides. Finish in the oven with the skin side down for crispy skin and meltingly tender fat. Or try it braised for quivering morsels of pork.

Note: there may be small fragments of soft cartilage left on the rib side. If you see any, they are easy to trim off before cooking.

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.
