250g of free-range pork fat from Hokkaido, Japan. This fat is highly versatile and can be used in a wide range of dishes. Use it as a substitute for oil in stir-fries and fried rice, or in ramen to add flavor and richness. Pork fat is also a great and quick snack when grilled to a crispy texture. Even frozen in bulk, the fat is easy to cut - so you can take just as much as you like at a time.
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.
