Porterhouse Chops Are Back!
We keep selling out of these but now the grilling season can continue in fine style with the return of our Porterhouse pork chops. These heritage breed chops will change the way you think about pork. Rich, meaty, healthy pork from our pasture-raised, Red Wattle hogs is like nothing else you’ve ever tasted. Read about how we raise them below.
We’ll also have all the other pork cuts you’ve requested: organ meats, hams, picnics, butts, belly slabs, ribs, ground pork, and lard.
Red Wattle Pork – by the whole, half, or quarter
Our heritage breed pigs are special and get fat and healthy from foraging on our organic pasture grasses along with our proprietary blend of certified organic feed that is soy-free with no GMO’s. This is tasty pork of the highest quality and is free of antibiotics, fungicides, herbicides, pesticides, hormones, or any drugs.
Bulk buying is most economical way to buy. A quarter hog is $9.99 per pound and is about 35 lbs of meat. You receive all this:
7 lbs of ham,
4 lbs bacon
1.5 lbs spare ribs
6 lbs loin (chops)
5 lbs of picnic hams
4 lbs of boston butt (roast)
2 lbs lard
2 lbs hocks and trotters

Pasture-raised animals roam freely in their natural environment where they’re able to eat nutritious grasses and other plants that their bodies are adapted to digest. In addition to dramatically improving the welfare of farm animals, pasturing also helps reduce environmental damage, and yields meat and eggs that are tastier and more nutritious than foods produced on factory farms. When you buy pastured meat, you’re not only taking a step to safeguard your health, protect the environment, and improve animal wellbeing, you’re also supporting sustainable farming and the farmers who choose to practice it. Small, local family farmers are invaluable members of the nation’s communities and play a key role as stewards of the land.
More Market Day Delights
We’ll also have our organic pastured eggs, and a vast array of our beautiful organic and specialty produce, varieties that are chosen for their distinctive flavors and are largely unknown since they are not found in grocery stores. Try our Flamingo spinach, Sungold, Yellow Pear and Everglades tomatoes, Famosa and Purple cabbage, plus bunches of dill, parsley and cilantro to add fresh herby flavors to your cooking. We’ll also have more potted plants for your kitchen garden at home.
Apple Banana potted plant
More than 95 percent of the bananas sold in the U.S. are Cavendish, the cultivar that dominates the market. Only a handful of the thousand or so other banana varieties out there are becoming available to consumers in this country. We have one of our favorites for you! For anyone accustomed to the mild taste and mushy texture of the Cavendish, you’ll love this dessert variety with delicious apple flavor when fully ripe. It’s excellent for container growing or in the ground and very simple to grow in our climate.
