The pork comes from the El Paso family farm, 100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan.
We use the whole ham (leg) only and aim at a 80 to 20 lean-to-fat ratio. No subtherapeutic use of antibiotics, no growth hormones, steroids, preservatives or additives.
These come in small packs of approx. 500g (17 oz.) for very convenient use. Store multiple packs in the freezer for quick and easy meals such as meatballs, bolognese sauce and recipes that call for stir fried pork. Taken straight from the freezer and defrosted in cold water a pack is ready for cooking in under 1h.

Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snow fields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs on the family-owned El Paso Ranch in Hokkaido that are raised completely free-range in the Tokachi area. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn and winter - 24 hours, all year free roaming on 30 hectares (75 acres) of land. The pigs are a slow and naturally grown British Camborough breed. They are fed large variety of feed mixes that contain all kind of grains, corn, soybeans and other vegetables and farm produce (pigs can’t survive only on grass). Newborn stay in a shelter together with their mother until they learn how to take care of themselves. No tail clipping of piglets, no gestation crates for sows. No factory farming. They receive all the respect, love and care. See for yourself.
