Our exclusive milk-fed porcelet is from a single farm in Quebec that follows unique protocols to produce pork unlike any other. Their proprietary milk formula creates the most luscious pork with creamy white fat, tender texture, and plenty of flavor. While shoulder picnic roast makes an impressive centerpiece for a holiday meal, it’s well-suited to an everyday family dinner. Slow-cooked or smoked, the shoulder is ideal for BBQ, and shredded porcelet will transform Taco Tuesday or flavor a hearty stew.

Score right through the rind to help the fat render out and the skin to crisp. Porcelet shoulder can be slow roasted, and finished under the broiler for a brief period to make the most incredible layer of crackling.

Exclusively raised for D'Artagnan by a single-family farm in Quebec which follows European protocols for cochon de lait, or milk-fed pig. The small-scale farm raises Yorkshire breed piglets in spacious barns with the greatest of care, nourishing them with a unique feeding program.

The piglets are fed a proprietary milk solution that is warmed to the temperature of mother’s milk, on a regular schedule that matches a natural nursing rhythm. This diet allows them to thrive and grow for longer periods of time, getting larger than the average suckling pig, while maintaining the tender texture associated with a much younger pig.
