Wild Boar Shoulder, Boneless
fresh: 3-5 lb avg
frozen: 3-5 lb avg
This lean shoulder of wild boar is rolled, boned, and tied in netting to make an easy and splendid roast. Our boar meat comes from animals that forage and root, eating a natural diet of grass, roots, nuts, fruits, acorns, and grains - and they are cage-trapped – not hunted. Wild boar meat is similar to pork, only darker, redder, and more intense. The shoulder is a lean cut, ideal for braising or slow-roasting, and is robust enough to stand up to full-bodied red wines or strong ale (chalice optional). Feel free to go hog wild.

We partner with experienced trappers in Texas to provide wild boar that is just that - truly wild. The animals are humanely cage-trapped in Texas, and then brought to USDA-inspected plants for processing, the same as farm-raised hogs.
Because of the growing numbers of wild boar in Texas, the law permits year-round hunting of these feral hogs. Our process is good for the environment and the local farmers because the boar are quite destructive to crops, trees, and other plant life.
Since we use large cages that do not harm the boar, and process them properly, we can offer this wild game meat under USDA law, which forbids hunted game to be sold.
