This summer and fall, input costs for our pork have fallen. […]

  • Why pastured pork, Jako honey is back, and more

    Posted on September 23, 2016 by in Uncategorized

    Pastured pork is worth it When comparing the nutrition of commodity pork vs. pastured pork, pastured pork wins every time.  Take, for instance, the increased levels of micro-nutrients found in the fat of pigs raised on pasture.  Or the absence of harmful commodity feed additives like ractopamine, banned in 160 countries but routinely fed in American feedlots.  Hands […]
