Boneless Boston Butt Variety Pack (12lbs)
Three 4lbs Half Boston Butts -- Red Wattle, Duroc and Berkshire – $125
From the breadbasket of America, we salute you!
This past week, the Heritage Team drove out of Kansas City though a blizzard, into deep farm country. Our mission: visiting the farms where the livestock we sell to you every week is bred and raised in impeccable conditions by men and women whose commitment to excellence is what makes our business possible.
We met with Larry Sorell on the Lazy S Farm, a classic Kansas farm where Larry produces Red Wattles, Gloucestershire Old Spots, Six-Spotted Berkshires and Mule Foots. The Red Wattle, featured today, is a rich fatty pig, absolutely superb for roasting or braising. Larry is seriously ramping up his Gloucestershires, an old English breed much celebrated for its flavor profile, and delicious milky fat.
At Craig Good’s spread, we visited with dozens of his purebred Duroc pigs. They are handsome animals of a beautiful rust color, smooth coats, and expressive faces. These purebred Durocs are beloved among chefs especially for the delicious belly meat, a perfect ratio of fat to meat. The flavor of these pigs is unctuous and porky without being greasy. Craig is also moving into breeding the Gloucestershire Old Spots, and it was our great pleasure to see dozens of tiny, scampering, squealing, black-spotted piglets!
Also featured are Butts from Berkshires raised on Newman Farm in the grassy expanses of the Ozark Mountains. The Newman family raise some of the most cherished Berkshire pigs in the nation. Berkshire meat is elegant, luscious and smooth. The streaks of fat that run through Berkshire meat give it a round and buttery flavor that melts on the tongue.
Because we have visited all these breeds this week, we are offering the Boneless Boston Butt Breed Variety Pack, featuring 3 half butts that weight 4lbs each. The Boston Butt is cut from the shoulder, and is a richly marbled, juicy piece of meat that is perfect for smoking, slow-roasting, or braising. The Variety Pack allows you to decide which breed produces your favorite meal. This is an unusual opportunity to get all three in one order. If you order today, you will get your delivery on Friday, just in time for the weekend!

"This golden amber syrup balances caramel and vanilla with that hearty, robust taste that makes us say, "Oh! Maple!" – Stephan Cantor
In late March, Dan, Andrea, Patrick and the Heritage Team are traveling to the coldest reaches of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont to help the Cantor family tap sugar maple trees. Then the maple sap will flow down to the Sugarhouse where it is boiled gently over a wood fire, just as it has been for generations. Just a few days later this Grade A Amber Syrup will be poured into beautiful glass jugs and sent to you for pancakes, waffles, desserts, glazing hams, or just drinking by the spoonful!

Pig Business: Invitation to free screening in the Capital Building with Robert F. Kennedy
March 9, 6 PM

The film has been shown in the House of Commons, the European Parliament, and is now slated for a viewing at on Capitol Hill in March.

Please encourage your representatives to attend by signing our change.org campaign, allowing them to make more educated decisions about subsidies and legislation.
