Over the past few months we have received several requests for organ meats to be added to our offering. Our pasture raised pork hearts are used as a unique ingredient in many different recipes from cultures all over the world.
Each heart weighs appriximately 350 grams and there is one per package.
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.
