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 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. Read more about the farm below.

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.

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 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 a large variety of feed mixes that contain all kinds of grains, corn, soybeans, and other vegetables and farm produce (pigs can’t survive only on grass, so there won't be grass-fed pork any time soon). Newborns 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, all images and videos are real.

Lots of fat

Translated from Japanese: It's completely different from the product page.
More fat than meat arrived. You can use it after cutting off the fat, but it's a waste of money.

It has a straightforward taste

Translated from Japanese: I made tomato stew. My family who worried about the smell at first loved it.
It was flavorful, and had a straightforward and refreshing taste.
It was easy to use because it was diced, so I’d like to buy it again.

Diced free-range pork

Translated from Japanese: When you put it in soup, stew, curry etc. it’s really delicious. Because it’s pre-cut, it’s easy to use. The meat doesn’t get hard.
I'm happy because it's easy to eat.
I will order again.

For curry!

Translated from Japanese: This boiled meat goes well with curry!
The fat is also moderate, so you can make delicious curry!

Translated from Japanese: When I order here, I buy this almost every time. It's made for stews, so it's harder than other cuts, but it's cut into small pieces and the thawing time is relatively short, so it's useful when you accidentally forget to thaw the meat and want to use it that day. It’s delicious because it has a certain degree of chewy texture without having to simmer it beforehand.
