Essential for the Silicon Valley diet

Translated from Japanese: I buy it every time I practice the Silicon Valley diet. The usual style is to make 1 kg of roast pork and 1 kg of prosciutto. Naturally, the taste is delicious, and I feel that healthy meat fat doesn’t make you feel uncomfortable.

Translated from Japanese: When I boiled it for kakuni, it was very delicious.
There was a lot of fat, but I felt that the melting sweetness was different from the meat of other makers.
I want to make bacon next time.

All Natural Free Range Pork Belly (1kg)

Horizon Farms
PK360

Description

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. 

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). 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.

My body is healed

Translated from Japanese: I bought it to make bone broth soup as a treatment for leaky gut.
While cooking, I was surprised that it didn't smell at all.
I also simmered chicken wings together with it.
The finished soup had no odor, was light and it felt like it soaked into my body.
Looking at the philosophy of this ranch and the pictures of the grazing scenery, I thought that I should thank the chickens for their lives again and for those who are involved in this.
Thank you.

I made a delicious soup

Translated from Japanese: I used it to make chicken bone soup.
I was very satisfied with the fact that I made more than I expected and the taste of the finished product was delicious. The meat around the bones was also carefully removed and used for cooking a different meal, which made this a great deal.

I have a feeling that this will become a standard for celebrations!

Translated from Japanese: Even though the taste is strong, the fat is really delicious!!!
When eating this store’s chicken breast, I realized there’s a difference to usual chicken and because a family member’s birthday is near, I’ve decided to order this whole chicken.
I cooked it the same as always, but the meat quality is completely different!
The whole family is a total fan of this taste and aroma. Thank you (^^)

I made Samgyetang with it

Translated from Japanese: Although I have bought several types of chicken here already, it’s my first time trying this whole chicken.
To prepare it carefully, I washed it, but even so, there was no fat or blood on the chicken.
It was the same with the other chicken products I already tried, but there was also not the characteristic (strong) smell of chicken.

Because it’s hard to know the chicken’s life from the packs that you can find in the supermarket, I could finally feel with this product that the chicken’s life was spent preciously. I’m thankful I’m able to enjoy this chicken meat and won’t waste a bite, as one shouldn’t forget this animal once had a precious life, too.
Although I boiled it for 1½ hours, the meat didn’t get dry, the fat sticking to the meat had no unpleasant smell and I got a soup with a golden color.

I order all the meat I need from this store, I’ve come to not like any other ones.
Although I eat a lot less meat now, I have not become a vegetarian or vegan yet, so I think I want to not forget to at least be thankful for the meal this chicken gave me.

I’m sorry for this long comment.
I will order again.

I tried a whole chicken for the first time.

Translated from Japanese: Preciously raised chickens packaged carefully (for delivery) arrived in the best condition possible.
I grilled it with natural salt and thyme from my garden. It was really delicious, a complete success. Even cooled down packed inside a bento, there is no unpleasant smell.

Thank you HORIZON FARMS!! (。◕ˇДˇ◕。)/

Translated from Japanese: With this product, I made roast chicken for the first time.
I marinated it for 1 hour with salt and pepper and rosemary. After filling the chicken with garlic, I baked it thoroughly in the oven.
My daughter was so happy! “This is incredibly delicious!!!” She said.
I know that if you defrost this store’s chicken, you have to process it cleanly.
Inside a vacuum pack, the quality also remains the same.
It was really delicious meat.
More than the smell, the taste was rich in flavor.
It was amazing!!!
My daughter has a pesticide and antibiotics allergy.
For that reason, we bought the most expensive organic chicken meat we could find in a supermarket to cook with it.
But the quality of the oil of the top-grade supermarket chicken and this store’s chicken is different!
Even if you eat a lot, your stomach doesn’t feel heavy.
Surprisingly, it was even a pleasure to clean the plates and the oven.
I want to film myself cleaning and show everyone.

Really delicious

Translated from Japanese: I made a simple soup with green onions, radish and these oxtails.
The seasoning I used was only salt, pepper and soy sauce and when I slowly simmered it, it connected with the flavor of the vegetables and turned very delicious.
The price is high and it's a shame that we have to compromise with the price because it's grass-fed.

The more it was stewed, the sweeter it became and the deeper the flavor got.

Translated from Japanese: I got it to make bone broth soup. The store was very polite and nice and the product itself is also very nice. It has a strong taste, and above all, it’s grass-fed meat, so you can eat it with no worries. I will order again.

I made bone broth

Translated from Japanese: It was easy to cook even for the first time, and I made a very rich and delicious soup. I boiled it for half a day, so it was easy to remove the meat from the bones and easy to eat. I want to buy it again.

I’m suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity

Translated from Japanese: I'm suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (CS), so I searched for safe meat that was drug-free and wasn't fed with strange foods. Sheep are said to be nutritious, but I can't find them in Japan, so I bought them in bulk up to the free shipping line, although it's a little expensive. I forcibly thawed and cooked it on the day I arrived, so it was still hard even if I used a pressure cooker, but it was delicious. I made tomato stew with it. The meat has a mellow lamb scent. Bone marrow is the best. The fat had a gummy-like feeling. I used to eat Genghis Khan, which only tasted like sauce, so I was satisfied with the lamb-taste spreading in my mouth. I'm looking forward to trying the other meats.

Translated from Japanese: I haven’t been able to eat in a restaurant because of corona, so I wanted to have something that is just as delicious, even if made at home. My family likes lamb, so I searched for lamb shanks. It was my first time buying here, but I was very satisfied. It was my first time seeing raw lamb shank, but it was very beautiful and my impression after eating was that it’s tender and delicious with no odor. For those who want to give this a try, if you have a pressure cooker, wine and rosemary, it will be delicious. I recommend it. Next weekend, I gave the recipe on the website a try and my family loved it.
