We were determined to produce the best pork possible, and after a lot of research, our decision to raise 100% purebred Berkshire pigs was an easy one!
- Berkshires are a phenomenal heritage breed, discovered over 300 years ago in Berkshire County, England. For many years, the royal family kept a Berkshire herd at Windsor Castle!
- Today, Berkshire pork is the most highly sought after pork in the world. Unlike commodity pork, or what is commonly referred to as “the other white meat”, Berkshire pork is visibly different. It has a darker, richer colour, with an abundance of intramuscular marbling. And with its shorter and finer muscle fibers, the Berkshire produces pork with unmatched tenderness.
- In numerous taste tests conducted over the past 25 years, Berkshire pork consistently ranks 1st! A couple examples are the National Pork Producers Association in the U.S., where they tested many breeds of pork for various eating characteristics – Berkshire came out 1st overall and 1st in 19 of 24 characteristics.
Also, the U of Iowa conducted a taste test and Berkshire came out 1st in 22 of 24 traits assessed!
- 100% pure Berkshire pork is very much in demand by chefs at many leading gourmet and upscale restaurants across North America, and in Japan, where Berkshire is called Kurobuta pork; it is treasured and served alongside their Kobe beef.
At Wild Moon Organics, we have combined this incredible breed with a stress free, organic lifestyle, lots of pasture and space to explore, and the best nutrition.
