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. Each pack contains one unsliced 300g sized block of bacon. Slice or cut the way you like it. We also offer thinly and thickly sliced bacon. See the cooking instructions below.
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, and blast frozen - all made in Japan. Hands down, this might be the cleanest bacon available. A difference in quality you can taste.

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 2 hours) or in the fridge overnight. 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 bits or slices without additional oil or butter into it.
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.
In our cooking example, we're presenting you our family's weekend favorite: Scrambled eggs and bacon bits. Cook the bacon bits first. Then add eggs that have been broken with a little bit of milk for extra fluffyness.
Mix well. The rendered fat from the bacon will add extra flavor. There is no need to season.
Serve for breakfast with toast and orange juice. Choose healthier and safe ingredients for a great start to the day for you and your family.
These patties are the best! Cooked to medium-rare they’re so juicy with a clean beefy flavor!
Nothing beats these burgers - and I had many in my life. Thank you for bringing quality products to Japan.
Nothing but delicious.
Translated from Japanese: Arrived after two days.
Grilled one (patty) in a frypan.
Used the second patty to break it into pieces for minced beef.
There’s no artificial additives
Translated from Japanese: It’s meat of really good quality that is very delicious when you grill it with only salt and pepper! That’s what my children say.
It’s relieving that the meat is simple and organic.
Translated from Japanese: I baked them in the oven together with vegetables, and after putting melting cheese and tomato on top, I turned the heat up for a few minutes. I also lightly put salt on top. It was a burger that works well with simple seasoning, has a rich flavor and chewy texture. Even though it’s a hamburger, the meat is amazingly firm and was very delicious.
I think I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: I was surprised when more oil came out than I expected, but it’s very delicious (о´∀`о)
My daughter wanted to try them, so I cooked the whole bag crispy for her.
From now on, when I want bacon, it’ll be this one (laugh)
Translated from Japanese: I used to hate bacon.
However, I bought it because my family likes it.
I made it crunchy to eat.
With stir-fried vegetables as side dish.
I had it with fried egg.
It's really delicious.
I love bacon. Lol
I'm going to order again.
Translated from Japanese: My children eat it every day, so I'm relieved to find something organic. The taste seems to be very delicious and you can eat it very quickly.
Translated from Japanese: As a result of trying various bacon, it seems that this one is my favorite. I will buy thick slices today!
Translated from Japanese: The saltiness is good and the crunchy feeling is really addictive.
It was very delicious. I will definitely order again!
These sausages have just the right amount of flavor and spice and are very juicy. I have served them to friends and they all love them! They are pretty spicy for kids, though.
I recommend these if you like a bit of spice.
Translated from Japanese: I cooked them in a frypan and then put them into a lentil stew. Without adding salt to the lentils, I ate it together and the perfect degree of spiciness was amazing.
Because the skin is thick, it’s very elastic, so there might be people who can’t bite through it with their teeth (I took a big bite). But if you properly use a knife and fork, you can eat with no problems. It might be better to cook the sausages on low flame until the skin is slightly burned. I didn’t cook them the way you can see them in the pictures on the website.
I will order again!
Translated from Japanese: Perfect degree of spiciness. For me, the saltiness was a little too much.
The outside is crispy! The inside meaty!
Translated from Japanese: Because of corona, I can’t go out, so I think having a BBQ can be fun. Spicy sausages and beer, there’s no better combination. The outside is crispy, there’s a prickling sound when you bite into them and the inside is juicy. Delicious~! These are big, filling sausages that are perfectly meaty. I want to try country style sausages next!
Translated from Japanese: For those who love meat. The herbs and the Italian flavor are amazing, it made me think “This is awesome!” I might order them again.
Translated from Japanese: The product itself was delicious, but when I boiled it in the bag as recommended, it became full of lye. If you show me how to cook delicious food like the picture, I will give 5 stars.
The scent of herbs is strong
Translated from Japanese: You may feel unsatisfied with the taste and flavor of the artificial sausages you usually eat.
However, this has a natural taste, so I would like to try a dish that makes the most of the taste.
I'm researching how to make it into pot-au-feu or add curry powder to make it look like keema curry.
Translated from Japanese: Extremely (Delicious)! I was really impressed with how delicious the sausages are! The used herb spices worked well and the sausages were juicy and responsive ☆After this, I ordered chicken sausage immediately! I'm looking forward to them ♪
Translated from Japanese: They were spicy and had a rough, wild taste. I boiled them in hot water without taking them out of the bag it came with. I turned off the heat after 30 minutes and then grilled them. It was my first time so I looked up how to cook them.
Translated from Japanese: These sausages were made from European Austrian pork. They’re thick and filling and the taste is strong.
