El Paso Ranch

10 items left


100% real free-range and naturally raised pork from Hokkaido in northern Japan, probably the only place in Japan that has space for free-roaming animals. No subtherapeutic use of antibiotics, no growth hormones, steroids, preservatives or additives are used. Read more about the farm below.

This is the whole pork belly, skinless and boneless. The pork belly is a very fatty cut of meat and can be found in many Southeast Asian cuisines. In the west, especially in the United Kingdom, the pork belly is either used as a roast or processed into bacon. In Japan, the pork belly is either thinly sliced for various dishes or used for an Okinawan dish called Rafute.

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). Newborn 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.
