North Fort Myers farm snags exclusive invite to Cochon 555 Miami
We are so pleased and honored to announce that we are going to the most awesome culinary competition in Miami, Cochon555. Cochon555 is a traveling culinary competition that takes 5 locally grown heritage breed pigs and pairs those pigs with 5 top chefs. Think of it a 40-course gourmet tasting menu. We are doubly excited to have one of our 200/lb heritage breed Red Wattle pigs paired with Chef Adrienne Grenier, the executive chef at 3030 Ocean in Fort Lauderdale and a former winner of the Food Network television show, Chopped.
Created in 2008 in response to the lack of education around heritage breed pigs, Cochon555 is a nose-to-tail culinary event dedicated to supporting family farmers and educating buyers about the agricultural importance of eating heritage breed pigs, some of which are on critical watch lists. The meat from heritage pigs is recognized for its superior flavor, texture, appearance, and nutritious qualities. Read more about Cochon555 here.
