Let’s dive in!

“You are what you eat.”

Brain food

Omega 3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fats responsible for brain health and mental health. It’s why we take fish oil, right?

Fun fact: pastured pork fat is loaded with it! Green grass and leaves are major sources of Omega-3 fats – and that is what pastured pigs eat.

No need to worry about heavy metals coming along in your pastured lard – only the good stuff.

Not only is it high in omega 3 fatty acids, but pastured pork is also low in omega 6 fatty acids.

  • Omega 3 = anti-inflammatory, beneficial fatty acids. A natural diet of browse, roots, bugs, and grasses create flavourful, good-for-you meat.
  • Omega 6 = inflammatory, unhealthy fatty acids. A diet of by-products, GMO corn and soybeans create high concentrations of omega 6 fats in convention pork.

But wait, there’s more!

Pastured lard is high in Vitamin D. Need any more incentive to eat that slice of bacon each winter morning? Can’t beat that as a way to get your Vitamin D in!

The fat of truly pastured pigs is amazing; there’s nothing like it.

Pastured pork is high in Vitamin E and Selenium

Pastured pigs can have up to 74% MORE selenium than factory farm pigs. That’s a lot. Selenium & vitamin E are antioxidants. Antioxidants help fight free radicals, which are damaging particles in the body – bad news. Selenium also plays a role in thyroid function, especially in relation to the immune system.

Happy pigs make healthy meat

  • Fresh air.

Low-stress animals make healthier meat. Their meat is more tender, tasty, and loaded with nutrients.

And sound science has emerged in the past couple of years showing that eating grass-fed, pastured pork will provide your body with more health-enhancing, disease-fighting materials than industrial-grade, CAFO-raised protein.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid – CLA

Scientific research is proving time and again that this stuff:

  • Combats cancer
  • Fights clogged arteries
  • Reduces body fat
  • Delays the onset of diabetes
  • Promotes the deposition of muscle rather than fat

When livestock eat their natural diet of pasture & browse, CLA levels are significantly higher than their feedlot counterparts.

Flavour!

It is hard to beat the flavour of pastured pork. From the minute you take it out of its wrapping, you can see the difference.

Rich colouring, fat, and flavour.

The complete package!

No more flabby, pale pink protein masquerading as pork.

No way.

We’re onto the real deal!

You’ll never want to go back.
