Horizon Farms proudly presents what is probably Japan's first all-natural, sugar-free, free-range, smoked pork bacon collection. This took us a year of experimenting and many costly batches. This is the "Canadian" style bacon which is made from the pork loin as opposed to the "American" style bacon which is made from the pork belly.
This "Canadian" style 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 2 hours using natural hickory smoke. Nope, no sugars ever. The result is amazingly good bacon that you can enjoy with the whole family.
We use the pork loin which has a great and balanced fat to meat ratio. 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. Please let the bacon cook in its own juices, this is where all the flavor is. Due to the high-fat content, the slices will shrink in size and crisp up. Best suited for a family breakfast, as a burger topping or in your salad. See the cooking instructions below.

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.
Even though leaner than the "American" style bacon which is made from the pork belly, the pork loin also has relatively high-fat content and it will show during cooking. The bacon will also shrink in size and become crispy. The juices that run out are full of flavor. Cook the next slices in the same juices for flavorful bacon.
Take off the bacon from the heat once crispy brown. The more you cook it the more crispy it becomes. We recommend not cooking them for too long.
Serve for a full breakfast, as a burger topping or in your salad.
Enjoy crispy bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and free-range pork.
