Horizon Farms proudly presents probably Japan's first all-natural, sugar-free, free-range pork bacon. This took us a year of experimenting and many costly batches. Here we are:
This bacon is cured for two weeks in an all-natural curing process using only natural spices. Absolutely no nitrates added, no curing salts, no celery. Then smoked for a duration of 3 hours using natural hickory smoke. Nope, no sugars ever. The result is amazingly good bacon that you can enjoy with your whole family. This tends to be more the American style bacon that crisps up and shrinks rather than the lean British or Canadian bacon which is usually made from the pork loin.
We use the pork belly which has relatively high-fat content - the juices are what makes our bacon so succulent. The pork comes from Austria which is free-range pork and completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. We say it again: our bacon comes free of preservatives, additives, gluten, lactose, MSG, fillers, sugar, white sugar, brown sugar, honey powder, agave, turbinado sugar, nitrates, flavor or color enhancers, or any artificial ingredients or nasties, just family farm produced, ethically raised high-quality pork and top-quality natural spices from around the world. Cured for 2 weeks, smoked, sliced and blast frozen - all made in Japan. Hands down, this might be the cleanest bacon available. A difference in quality you can taste. If you are on a Keto diet, this is what you have been looking for. Read more about the farm below.
Each pack contains 300g worth of pre-sliced bacon. The thickness is 2mm which is your average bacon thickness used for burgers or breakfast. Cook on high heat without adding any oil in the frypan. Due to the high-fat content of the pork belly, the slices will shrink in size and crisp up. Best suited for a family breakfast, as a burger topping, to wrap around asparagus or to wrap a filet mignon steak. See the cooking instructions below.
Approx. 300g (10.5 oz.)

Austria, probably the happiest place for pigs. Surrounded by mountains and pristine forests of Styria the pigs are farmed on microforms - small family operated and owned family farms. The pigs live on hay in groups of around 20 in free-range stalls. Occasionally the animals get to roam freely on the fields when the weather permits. Completely free of growth hormones and antibiotics. The feed is completely in-house grown and consists of corn, barley, wheat, soybean meal, extraction meal, amino acids, mineral mixtures.

Free-range in large stalls with hay, occasional free roam on fields if weather permits.
Defrost the pack of bacon in a bowl of water (less than 1 hour) or in the fridge overnight.
One pack is enough for 4 persons. Once opened you can leave the pack in the fridge for up to 2 more days. Please do not refreeze again for quality reasons.
Prepare a frying-pan to high heat and place the bacon slices without additional oil or butter into the frying pan.
The pork belly that we use for the bacon is relatively high in fat and it will show during cooking. The bacon will also shrink in size and become crispy - the very characteristics of American style bacon. Turn them once to have a crispy surface on both sides.
If you have a splatter screen at hand, use it.
Take off the bacon from the heat once crispy brown. Place on a kitchen paper towel for a while to "drain the bacon from the grease".
Serve for breakfast, as a burger topping, wrapped around asparagus or a filet mignon steak.
Enjoy crispy bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and free-range pork.
