Pork Of Yore

porkofyorecropDo you long for Pork that has real flavour and taste, that melts in your mouth, that is succulent and juicy when cooked?

Pork of Yore is on a farm located in the Ottawa Valley, about 100 kilometres west of Ottawa in  the Terroir de Bonnechere.  Terroir de Bonnechere has the perfect mix of pristine soil, pristine water and loads of sunshine  with just the perfect amount of rainfall and humidity to foster the overgrowth and undergrowth of the diverse ecosystem on the 112 acre farm that is Pork of Yore.   The farm has an abundance of juniper berries, wild grapes and plums, heritage apples and a virtual smorgasbord of delights for a foraging pig.  This unique combination creates pork with a distinctive flavour and taste that is second to none.

The pigs at Pork of Yore are Tamworths and Berkshires, Heritage Breeds that are great foragers.  Free range, they are at liberty to exercise  and root or just lay about soaking up the sunshine and natural Vitamin D. They are rotated through the meadows and woodlands to keep them and the land they forage healthy and in good condition. Pork of Yore does not feed antibiotics, artificial growth stimulants, animal by-products or chemical additives. The result is healthy, safe, succulent and delicious pork. Pasture production is not an aberration, but a historical norm. It is the first way and the only proven and lasting way to best serve and protect the land, the animals, and those people who eat pork.
