Our California Kurobuta pigs are raised in pasture and woodlands—a practice now almost unheard of in the United States because of the industrialization of agriculture. Pigs are by nature woodland animals (think truffle-hunters) and they thrive in pasture, too. In this environment they have unlimited access to pasture plants, cattails and watercress, dirt, bugs, grubs, and roots. Their diet is supplemented seasonally with fruits, nuts and vegetables from our neighboring farms and local grain producers. This makes for an exceptionally flavorful meat for you from happy, healthy animals.

As the founder of Slow Food San Benito Bounty, a small farm owner and an amateur gourmet chef, I love good food.…I have so enjoyed the discovery of California Kurobuta pork. Raised humanely…yields meat of unsurpassed texture, flavor and aroma. It is possible to cook it thoroughly and still enjoy a moist, well-textured and tasty dish. Try it once and you will never settle for less.

Having the pleasure of working with California Kurobuta Pork, nothing else compares. The fat content, the firmness of the meat—you can tell these were very happy pigs.It’s the difference between owning an original Picasso or a knock-off bought at the flea market.
