100% Pasture Raised New Mexican Pork
Physical Description: Each pack comes with an approximately 1.5-2 lbs Ham Hock / Shank
Nutritional Information: A Source of Key Nutrients: Pork is an excellent source of protein and provides several important vitamins and minerals. A 3-ounce serving of pork is an “excellent” source of thiamin, selenium, protein, niacin, vitamin B-6 and phosphorus, and a good source of zinc, riboflavin and potassium. Heart-Healthy: Pork is naturally low in sodium and an “excellent” source of potassium – two nutrients that, together, can help regulate blood pressure.
Cooking: These (or even just the meat from them) would be really great in roasted cauliflower soup, winter vegetable soup, or ham and pumpkin soup. All the sinew and bones and tendons are the best for adding flavor and gut-healing proteins to a broth, since that’s where the good stuff is. They have a secret superpower: they can make any kind of soup delicious. Roasting them really deepens the flavor even more and adds some extra spice to the mix.
Farming Practices: Our pigs are raised on a small farm on the edge of the Rio Grande river in Northern New Mexico. Each animal has approximately a half acre of land where they are free-range and have daily human interaction (which includes regular treats such as apples). USDA Certified, grain fed, their diet has consisted mainly of crude protein, crude fiber, and plant fiber. All of our pigs are hormone free and have been raised in a stress free environment. We are excited to deliver this high quality meat straight to your door.
