Fun Fact:  A fun fact about pork chops is that they come from the pig's loin, which runs from the shoulder to the hip. What makes this interesting is the versatility and range of cuts that can come from this single area, resulting in pork chops that can vary significantly in taste and tenderness. For instance, the rib chop and loin chop are from closer to the rib area and tend to be more tender and flavorful, while the sirloin chop comes from the area near the hip and can be a bit tougher.

Moreover, pork chops were historically known as "America's Cut," a term coined in the mid-20th century by the National Pork Board to boost pork sales. This campaign was remarkably successful, making pork chops a staple of American cuisine. The term celebrated the innovation of cutting meat from the loin in a specific way that maximized tenderness and flavor, showcasing the culinary creativity and marketing ingenuity of the time.

Which is better: bone-in or boneless pork chops?

If preventing dry pork is a top priority, then start by choosing the right chops. While boneless chops may be cheaper, it's the bone that keeps the pork chop moist and imparts flavor. For best results, choose bone-in pork chops that are 1 to 1 1/2-inches thick.

Tip!! Go for bone-in. The bone helps provide some protection from overcooking and also has some fat around it that keeps the pork juicier and tastier, so we prefer the bone-in chops.

A pig's natural environment is the forest where it is able to root around for its favorite foods such as roots, nuts, berries, grasses, leaves, and insects. Raising our pigs in the forest provides a high quality and flavorful meat product for our clients. 

We supplement their feed with Non-GMO feed. The benefits of forest raised pork are: 1) Superior flavor 2) Improved texture 3) Increased Omega-3 fats compared to commercially produced pork 4) Finally, the most important factor is that our hogs are raised in a NO stress environment, which directly impacts the quality of the meat.

Actual product may be slightly different than shown. Due to natural variations in our hogs, shape, size, and/or weight of individual cuts may vary. It is normal to see slight variations in color depending on both the type of product and the aging process.
