Horizon Farms

Please note that due to an increase in production costs, we have had to increase the price of this item. We are sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

These are thin 3mm slices (1/8″) cut right from the whole skinless and boneless pork belly. You get 3 packs, each weighing 300g (0.6lbs) that's 900g (2lbs.) in total - this way you don't have to use them all at once. The pork belly is a very fatty cut of meat and can be found in many Southeast Asian cuisines. In the west, the pork belly is mainly processed into tasty bacon. A lot of Japanese stir fry dishes call for sliced pork belly, for example, Buta Shogayaki (pork belly with ginger and onions) or the famous yakisoba (stir fry noodles).

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. Both farms are completely free-range in the Tokachi area of Hokkaido. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn and winter - 24 hours, all year free-roaming. The images below are actual photos of the farms.

Free-range pork, in this case, pastured pork tastes different because it is different! The pigs are able to exercise freely and build natural muscles without the aid of growth promoters. They get to wander and forage with the herd and interact and do not suffer the same stress as intensively farmed pigs. Give it a try and taste the difference! Raising pigs free-range on open pastures is an extremely cost-intensive operation that makes free-range pork more expensive compared to conventional pork products.

Translated from Japanese: Slices are easy to use and useful for stir-fried and simmered dishes. It has a lot of fat, but it's not too heavy and delicious.

Translated from Japanese: I made pork soup by boiling it for a long time. It was boiling deliciously, which was the best.
