Raw Pasture Raised Pork Fat for Lard

Raw, ground pork fat from truly pasture-raised pigs.

Our pork fat is not bleached, deodorized, hydrogenated or altered. It is the raw, uncured, unsalted fat from the pig, and can be rendered for cooking to make lard, or for larding lean cuts of meat or game poultry. Lard makes the best pastry for pies and tarts and adds excellent flavor as a cooking medium.

Absolutely zero antibiotics, hormones, vaccines, or drugs.Pasture/woodland raised

***IMPORTANT NOTE:  The health benefits of lard apply only to pasture-raised pork.  Fat (and marrow) is where a lot of the bad stuff is stored and concentrated (ie, chemicals, additives, vaccinations, by-products of junk ingredients, etc). For this reason, we strongly recommend only using fat from pasture-raised pigs and cows.  Avoid fat from commercially raised livestock. Find farmers like our farm who are refuse to vaccinate and do not treat with hormones/antibiotics. Read More
