340g of coarse ground 100% Kurobuta pork/mince from Hokkaido, Japan. Kurobuta Pork is juicy, well-marbled, and has a superior flavor. We use the pork leg and pork picnic ham as well as parts from the primal cuts. A typical characteristic of kurobuta pork is a high-fat ratio. This ground pork comes at a 70/30 lean-to-fat ratio and is therefore extremely juicy. Do not add any oil and cook vegetables or other ingredients in the pork fat for incredible flavor. Use for quality meatloaves, meatballs, and burgers. 

100% full-blooded Kurobuta pork is well-known for superior quality, juiciness, flavor, and marbling. Kurobuta is slightly darker in color and richer in flavor. The Kurobuta pigs from the Nakano farm are raised on open pasture in the idyllic Tokachi region of Hokkaido which provides the perfect conditions for raising pigs as nature intended. The pigs are free to forage and wallow on open pasture and are raised slowly with love and respect by the Nakano family for 12 months which is double the time of conventional factory-farmed pigs. It goes without saying that the pigs are raised without antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones. All feed is locally produced and sourced. All images are actual images of the family farm. See below.

Translated from Japanese: No odor at all, the taste of pork is very delicious and I really like it.

It's minced meat with a lot of fat...

Translated from Japanese: I was disappointed with all the fat.
Unlike the picture, about 80% of it was fat.
It was a problem for my family because none of us like fat…
If you like it, it seems to have the taste of kurobuta.
Immediately, I received a polite email (correspondence of the shop).
Thank you to the staff.
For those who don’t like fat, I think you should buy minced meat from other pork.
Maybe you should try minced pork from Hokkaido.


Translated from Japanese: It had almost no odor. I made a hamburger and it was delicious.
It’s cheaper when bought in bulk.
I want to buy it again.

Coarse ground pork without antibiotics

Translated from Japanese: It's pork with no use antibiotics and it's expensive, but it's delicious and I can't stop buying it. Minced meat is especially delicious.
The antibiotic-free meat that I bought locally was no coarse ground meat, so I made it myself.
This saves time and effort.

Exquisite meat

Translated from Japanese: I put it in fried rice and yakisoba. It doesn't have the strange greasiness that is typical of minced meat on the market. It was just right without being greasy when it was first fried, and it was delicious with just the right amount of meat. And it was easy to eat!
