These heirloom-breed hogs are raised by family farmers in the Midwest, like fifth-generation farmer Russ Kremer. The hogs are raised without antibiotics, added hormones or growth enhancers in open spaces where they’re free to root, nest and explore. When Russ graduated from the University of Missouri in the early 1980s, he adopted modern hog production practices like everyone else he knew. All that changed when one day a boar gored him and he nearly lost his leg. That near tragedy changed Russ’s way of farming forever. In 2001, he helped found a cooperative made up of farmers who share his commitment to sustainable practices. Their antibiotic-free hogs are raised humanely and are prized by chefs for their tender, flavorful meat.Ingredients: Pork, Water, Contains 2% or Less of: Salt, Brown Sugar, Celery Juice, Natural Flavors.
