The Best Wild Boar Meat Straight To Your Door
Wild boar is actually an ancestor of the domestic pig, and has been around since before the Ice Age. In fact, there’s evidence that humans have been interacting with the species since 13,000 BC. Basically, humans have been eating this meat for a very long time, and we’re firm believers that ancient ways of eating are often a portal to health, vibrancy and sustainability.
Wild boar are native to Europe, but were brought to North America for hunting purposes in the late 19th century. Some of these boar escaped hunting preserves and mated with the feral descendants of domestic pigs that had been brought to the country previously by Spanish explorers. Modern day wild boar in the United States are usually a hybrid of the two.
Today in America, wild boar are abundant in numbers and are commonly considered a nuisance by farmers as they destroy fields and rapidly reproduce. They have been considered overpopulated for more than 20 years and have insatiable appetites for crops and grasslands. This makes wild boar a particularly sustainable choice when it comes to purchasing meat. We feel great about offering wild boar meat for sale, and confident that you’ll feel the same way about buying it.
When it comes to wild boar meat nutrition, domestic pork can’t even begin to compare. This meat is a great source of zinc and healthy monounsaturated fats. It also contains thiamine, riboflavin and niacin. These vitamins help our bodies to convert food into energy, boosting the metabolism, nervous system and brain function. Wild boar is very lean and much lower in cholesterol and calories than pork, while containing higher levels of protein.
Because they are wild animals, wild boar enjoy a robust nature and are far less prone to illness and disease than domesticated pigs. Our wild boar meat contains zero sodium, while farmed pork contains extremely high levels. For this reason wild boar is a much healthier choice for heart health. Remember - you are what you eat! Factory farmed pork is pumped full of additives and ridden with disease.
