We are proud to have developed the Blackbeard's line of Mangalitsa Pork, known as the tastiest pork in the world. Our heritage breed pigs are all natural and pasture-raised at the ranch.. Mangalitsas 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. We offer individual cuts or a scalded whole or half pig (call us for prices).
