    The Mangalitsa is an incredible old-world breed has been called the "kobe beef of pork" and recognized by Slow Food in their Ark of Taste. They are a lard-type breed that not only produces delicious silky, white lard that, when raised on pasture, is high in omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants, but they will also give you the most decadent cuts of dark red, marbled meat you have ever laid eyes on!

     

    What makes Mangalitsa pork special?

     

    • Mangalitsa pigs are slow growing, reaching market weight no earlier than 15 months as opposed to commercial breeds which are processed at 6 months.  The extra time and care that goes into raising them is well worth it, as this longer growth time results in pork that is exceptionally rich in flavor, has a beautiful texture and is heavily marbled with delicious fat!
    • The fat!  Mangalitsa lard is like no other!  It has integrity while cooking, instead of melting completely away, but is very tender, sliceable, and edible.  The texture is amazing.  Don't trim the fat!
    • The fat is healthy!  Mangalitsa lard is very high in antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids.
    • If you're wanting to try your hand at your own homemade charcuterie, this pig is world-renowned!
