    We own a small, family run, heritage hog farm in south Texas. We love food and our passion for great product is what fueled our interest in naturally raised pork. We feel that great food starts with great ingredients. We would love to hear from chefs and restaurateurs that are using heritage pork products and why.

    We love to cook and look forward from learning more from the experts.

    Thank you.

    Hello and welcome to Cheftalk.

    I don't live in the USA - but all the pork I buy, whether sausages, roasting joins or other products is all organic, raised on my butcher's family farms just a few miles outside the city. I know he has Gloucester Old Spot and Tamworth pigs. Don't know any American 'heritage' breeds, but suspect they may be of European ancestry:lol:

    Yes, the Large Blacks are of English ancestry. We also have Tamworth sows which are an Irish ancestry pig.

    Irish?

    As far as I knew, Tamworths were of Staffordshire origins!
