Pork

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 on what the hogs are fed. Individual cuts can be purchased, but this is usually expensive. Purchasing by the half or whole hog is much more economical. Purchasing by the half or whole animal is limited to certain times of the year.

Buffalo Peak Ranch

Purchase individual cuts, or ½ or whole hog. Butcher (Jensens) does not use nitrates nor MSG. Rendered lard available. Raise a mix of breeds, and breed choice can not be confirmed.
