The weight of this product has been changed. Also, to provide you with a better shopping experience we are slowly welcoming additional free-range pig farmers to our pork product ranges. This product will now be from either the El Paso Ranch or Nakano Farm of Hokkaido - both from the same location, raising all-year free-range pigs without nasties. There is no difference in quality or package size. See more below.

Please note that we are unable to accept requests for a specific farm or fat content regarding this product. Thank you for your understanding.

300g (10.6oz) of ground pork/mince made from the leg or thigh meat. The natural fat/meat ratio of pork leg and thigh is 20/80 - which is the perfect balance for juicy ground pork. Taken straight out of the freezer and placed in cold water they can be defrosted in less than 45 minutes.

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs that are raised 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-range. 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.

Compared to the previous years

Translated from Japanese: Compared to the previous years…
Is there a seasonal problem?

I’m glad there’s still no smell.


Translated from Japanese: It’s a very tasty mince with no smell.


Translated from Japanese: I keep it in stock to make soboro bowl for lunch.
I mixed it with finely chopped mushrooms and season it with sugar and miso.
I just make it in the evening and put it on rice in the morning. It’s convenient.

Safe and secure

Translated from Japanese: It's hard to find good pork, but Horizon Farms is really helpful. I used it to make spice curry and hamburger steak!


Translated from Japanese: It was really delicious, I’m impressed. I made stuffed peppers. I will buy it again.
