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. All 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 nitrates, and MSG.
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. Hogs are humanely raised and develop at their natural rate, crate-free, using environmentally safe practices. 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.
