100% Pasture Raised New Mexican Pork
Physical Description: Each pack comes with an approximately 1.5-2 lbs Rib Roast.
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: Pork rib roast is also referred to as rack of pork (it also may be labeled center-cut pork loin). The cut comes from the rib area of the loin, so it contains a bit more fat which makes it very flavorful. The pork rib roast/rack of pork is the pork equivalent of a standing beef rib roast or a rack of lamb. This cut makes a show-stopping centerpiece for an elegant dinner. Before roasting or barbecuing the pork rib roast, it should be “frenched.” Simply cut the meat away from the end of each rib, so that part of each bone is exposed.
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.
