Pork: GMO-free & Pastured

Pastured pork is not 100% raised on pasture, like beef.  A hog’s diet is supplemented with various things, depending on the farm, such as milk, grains, vegetables, etc.  The flavor of the pork will be influenced by what the hogs are fed.  Individual cuts can be purchased, though buying by the half or whole hog is more economical.  Bulk purchased may be limited to certain times of the year, namely late summer/autumn.

 

Buffalo Peak Ranch

Purchase individual cuts, or ½ or whole hog.  Butcher (Jensens) does not use nitrates or MSG.  Rendered lard and broth available.
