Our ground fat comes from the backfat of the pig. We grind it for you to make it easy to use.
The fat from these pastured Iberico pigs is unique and special. It is very high in healthy mono-unsaturated oleic fatty acid, the same one found in olive oil. Our pasturing system enhances the omega-3 fatty acid and anti-oxidant (like Vitamin E) content of the pig’s fat. It’s ideal for making a homemade lard that is guaranteed to take your cooking up a notch or two. (Click on our “Fat” page.)
You can also use this unrendered ground backfat directly in the many cooking applications or mix it with our ground pork to make your own favorite sausage.
Oxygen, light, and bacterial action are the enemies of fat. They will increase oxidation and rancidity. So keep your fat sealed, protected from light exposure, and frozen hard until you are ready to use it.
"We hope you enjoy this farm-to-table, nose-to-tail, slow food eating experience from our family farm."
