Free-Range Pork Loin Slices from Hokkaido (300g)

Horizon Farms

PK309


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, Nakano Farm or Curly Flats Farm of Hokkaido - all 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 (10.5oz) of thinly sliced free-range pork loin slices from Tokachi, Hokkaido. These slices have a rich pork flavor and are perfect for Japanese dishes like sukiyaki. The fat renders beautifully and creates extra juiciness. 

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 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.
