We have moved to Manglaitsa hogs for their superior flavor and ability to thrive in our pasture program.
Mangalitsa are a Hungarian breed of pig, prized for their buttery flavor hard white fat, and well marbled red meat. The breed history is really cool. We are really happy about the change in our breeding program to produce these pigs. We raise them on a small scale, to complement our beef.
We feel there’s enough options for people to get other common breeds of white meat pork, we don’t need to raise anything that is part of a flooded market.
