We are happy to announce the price of this product has been lowered.
The product you will receive will be from either El Paso Ranch, Nakano Farm, or Curly Flats Ranch. All cubes are the same weight and of the same high quality. All pigs were pasture-raised in Hokkaido all year long, and Horizon Farms is proud to be able to offer this product after talking directly with the farms. Please note that it's not possible to choose the farm. Please refer to the bottom of this page for more information about the farms.

100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido, Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. 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: It's cheap, but it was a little hard. Although I boiled it…
Translated from Japanese: I ate it with cooked rice and curry. It was delicious and without any odor.
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.
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.
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.
