Cooking: Wild boar Osso Buco is an ideal cut for slow cooking recipes, and there are numerous fantastic ways to prepare it. A popular option is to season the meat with salt and pepper, quickly pan-sear it, and then braise it in the oven. With a natural diet comprising nuts, fruits, roots, and tubers, wild boar offers a distinct flavor profile. Its lower fat content and darker coloring, in comparison to pork, contribute to a delightful sweet and nutty taste. Due to its inherent leanness, we recommend cooking wild boar at lower temperatures to avoid drying out the lean meat. Ensure proper thawing before cooking for optimal results.
Hunting Practices: Our wild boar operations are located just south of San Antonio, Texas. We directly source wild boar from trappers throughout the Texas Hill Country. To minimize stress, our wild boar are humanely trapped and transported under the supervision of trained veterinarians. Each animal undergoes USDA veterinary inspection, meeting all necessary requirements. These truly wild boars roam freely, without the use of added hormones, steroids, or antibiotics, ensuring a completely free-range experience. While a significant portion of the United States' wild boar is exported to Germany, Italy, and France, this delicious meat is gaining popularity in America. We are excited to deliver this high-quality meat straight to your door.
