Our heritage pork is raised completely free range on a beautiful small farm here in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately one half acre of land. These pigs roam as they please, swimming in the Rio Grande river. The farm is a rehabilitation center for those struggling with drug addictions. The center features agricultural therapy through caring for and interacting with the pigs. These animals get daily interaction, treats and live a completely stress-free life. Living stress-free is important for all animals, but particularly essential for pigs because they are quite sensitive. This pork is USDA Certified and grain fed with a nutritionally balanced diet. The pigs consume a nutritionally ideal ratio of crude protein, crude fiber and plant fiber. They are, like all of our meat, completely hormone free.
So much pork in grocery stores and restaurants is full of hormones and raised in terrible factory farming environments. We encounter many customers who avoid eating pork because of these realities. Like any meat, the difference is so enormous when the animals are ethically raised that it may as well be considered a completely different food. Pork is one of the most popular meats in America. We kept getting requests from customers who wanted to purchase pork from us, so when this incredible sourcing became available to us we knew we wanted to carry this meat. It’s exceptional in flavor and quality and offers more nutritional value than conventionally raised or industrially farmed pork. This free range, humanely raised pork is truly the best we’ve ever had.
We’re excited to offer ham hocks (shanks), ham roasts, rib roasts, and ground Italian sausage. The hocks have a bone in the middle chock full of nutrients and flavor. The ham and rib roasts are delicious and perfect for holidays and dinners of all kinds. Our ground Italian sausage will be a new staple in your kitchen, perfectly seasoned for a mild and versatile yet distinctive flavor. This is pork that you can feel great about buying and eating for so many reasons. The taste, the health benefits, the sourcing and the unique nature of the farm that this pork comes from set it apart from all the rest. As always, our mission is to steer as many people as possible away from factory farmed meat. By offering well-sourced pork, we are able to provide better for our local community as well as our nationwide customers.
