300 Years: For over 300 years, Berkshire hogs have been recognized for their amazing meat quality. Known as “Kurobuta” in Japan, the superior taste of Berkshire pork is as prized as Kobe beef. Like its beef counterpart, Berkshire pork boasts beautiful marbling and superb, moist texture.
More Flavorful Pork: However, in America over the last 20 years, consumers have become more concerned about fat intake, and the pork industry responded by breeding pigs to be leaner. Compared to pigs from the 1950’s, today’s pigs contain 75% less fat, resulting in a dry and bland tasting product. Lately, there has been an increasing demand for a more flavorful pork product, and therefore the re-emergence of the Berkshire breed.
Berkshire pork is famous for the perfect combination of juiciness, flavor and tenderness. One taste and you’ll see why this breed of pork has retained its popularity through the test of time. Try our Berkshire pork today and discover all the natural flavor you have been missing!
