These ham hocks, are smoked and naturally cured with water, salt and celery juice! When you raise the breeds of hogs we do and pair it with a natural cure - it produces a delicious ham like no other! These are cooked and frozen, to prepare make sure you hit an internal temperature of 165 degrees. These make an awesome pot of beans or even adds some great flavor to stew!
1915 Pasture Raised Pork
The saying "pork, the other white meat" (aka pale pink) is non-existent in our vocabulary. Our pork has unmatched flavor, dark red in color and well marbled - the type of pork high-end restaurants are after. We do this by choosing "old world" heritage breeds, and put them in an environment they were designed to be raised in, either on pasture or in the brush where they can forage on grasses, acorns, whatever their snouts find with plenty of room to move in the sunshine, and supplemented with a NON GMO grain. When you raise pigs the way Tanner and I do, you don't have give them growth promoting drugs like sub-therapeutic antibiotics or beta-agonists which are so commonly used today in America (and illegal in many other countries). Drugs and crammed barns are a necessity to keep the price of grocery store pork low (yes meat is a commodity.. isn't that crazy?), and that is what many people want. However at 1915, we believe with all of our heart in providing a choice to those that value flavor, your health, and animal welfare first. - Catherine
