Ground pork is a versatile and flavorful meat that can be used in a variety of dishes. This pork is all-natural and heritage breed, meaning that it is raised without antibiotics or hormones. The flavor profile is slightly sweet and nutty, and the meat is delicate and moist. Ground pork can be cooked in many ways, but one of our favorite ways to prepare it is to pan-fry with some garlic and onion.
It All Started With Bacon
Pederson’s Natural Farms began in 1992 making their now-famous uncured bacon — with no sugar added and using just the essential ingredients. Since then, they’ve followed up with an even greater product selection, including breakfast links, sausages and, Crowd Cow seasonal favorite, Uncured Heritage Ham.
Humanly and Naturally Raised
All Pederson's animals are raised with care, always without growth hormones or antibiotics, and are fed a nutritious vegetarian diet. Pederson’s simple but strict standards extend to their products, too — their offerings are free of preservatives, artificial ingredients, nitrates, and MSG. Hogs are humanely raised and develop at their natural rate, crate-free, using environmentally safe practices.
Better Marbling, Better Flavor
Pederson’s Natural Farms works with a network of family farmers in the United States raising Duroc-cross pigs — a heritage breed known for exceptional marbling, juiciness, flavor and tenderness. Smoked products use all-natural wood chips to infuse extra flavor, and any seasonings get soaked in over time, not injected all at once. With a simple and clean ingredient list, Pederson allows the rich taste of their meat to take center stage.
