There is nothing like the smell and sound of sizzling bacon to get the slow pokes out of bed. Don't be concerned by the extra fat in our bacon, this is a natural trait of the heritage breed pigs that we raise. Fat derived from pasture raised animals is very nutritious and beneficial for cognitive health and function. Our bacon is full of flavour and cooks down beautifully to perfect crispness.

The old world heritage breed pigs that we raise on TK Ranch — specifically Berkshire and Duroc — are famous for their carcass and eating quality. When compared to conventionally raised pigs — that are bred to be lean and housed inside barns — our pigs are much different. They naturally have more fat that gives them the hardiness to live outside in all types of weather and this keeps them healthier and more content. This translates into richer meat that is well marbled and has a wonderful flavour.
