This is your classic bacon, salty and sweet! Perfect for breakfast or used in a BLT.
Healthy animals result in healthy food. The heritage pigs of Snug Valley spend most of their lives outside on lush pasture. They have lots of room to roam, eat and play, as well as wallow and root, as only pigs can do. They get about 30% of their nutrition from fresh grasses, and the rest from high quality grain feed, a balance which is optimal for an active pig.
The result of all their activity, exercise and fresh air is some of the best tasting and healthiest pork anywhere. I was never a big pork eater growing up because it was so dry and bland. This pork is tender, moist, and a dream to cook, unlike industrially raised pork. And it also goes without saying that this pork is free of additives and so nutrient dense that the flavor is… an epiphany!
This bacon is TOP NOTCH! My husband said he thinks it's the best bacon he has ever had, and I have to agree with him! I certainly will order it again!
very high quality bacon. the best I have had in a while.
Really tasty bacon. I added it to potato salad and it kicked the whole dish up a notch. A good fat to meat balance. Will buy again.
The flavor of the bacon is mild. It's hard to detect any of the individual flavors being used in smoking the bacon, but in any event, the bacon has wonderful flavor. It's incredibly meaty, more akin to a type of bacon you mind find in Ireland or England. It's delicious. It's definitely pricier than standard bacon, but try it for yourself.
I've had a lot of high end bacon from high end pigs. I'd never really thought of bacon as sweet before until I tried this. At first I thought the spices were peppercorns and I was nervous about it overwhelming the flavor of the meat. Not so! I think that this is easily the best bacon I have ever eaten. I even like it better than some of the extra-thick that I used to prefer. When they say "the right mixture of fat and meat", they mean it. Each slice has been perfect.
