The Finest Pork
The Berkshire Breed of pig consistently yields gourmet pork that is superior in taste and eating quality. This premium quality meat is darker, tastier, and contains more marbling than most other types of pork. Even the fat from the Berkshire has enhanced physical properties and flavour when compared to other breeds, and it actually breaks down during the cooking process adding to the overall flavour.
This exceptional pork, prized for its richness and depth of flavour, is often referred to as 'Kurobuta' which is a Japanese term translated as 'Black Gold', and is widely considered to be the Kobe beef of the pork world. It consistently tops other breeds in categories such as meat marbling, moisture and tenderness.
The Berkshire pig is named after the county in England where they were discovered by Oliver Cromwell's' army more than 300 years ago. The Berkshire has been in North America for nearly 150 years.
