Mangalitsa Fresh Ham Roast (Average 7 lbs.)

Out of stock
Product Details

Mangalitsa’s are a heritage breed; our stock comes from Hungary and Austria. They are a ‘lard- type’ pig; on average 65-70% of the carcass is fat, and lean meat is only 30 – 35% of the carcass, compared to over 50% in modern breeds. The meat of the Mangalitsa pig is highly marbled with creamy white fat and is high in omega-3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants. Their lard is considered a delicacy; it is lighter, and melts at a lower temperature, than lard from other pigs, because it contains more unsaturated fat.

Mangalitsa’s were nearly lost to extinction in the 1990’s, as lard had fallen out of favor. Thankfully dedicated farmers brought them back, and now their population, while still rare, has stabilized. We are raising our pigs in line with the stewardship ethic that guides everything we do. Animal care is critical to us; our pigs are free range and forage to their hearts’ content while being raised in an environmentally sound fashion (we recycle all nutrients and organic matter). We raise purebred Mangalitsa’s and Mangalitsa-Hereford cross.
