REGENERATIVELY FARMING HAIRY COWS & WOOLY PIGS IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
Mangalitza, those are the curly haired ones right? Well yes, but they are much more than that. Their distinctive long curls when grown, or definitive black stripes looking like wildboar piglets when young making them easy to identify, Their meat in the pig world has been compared to that of Wagyu in the beef world. Their fat in buttery and thick across the loin and belly of the animal - essentially they are excellent to eat and even better when made in to charcuterie.
Mangalitsa pigs are well adapted to life outdoors, happily foraging for much of their food. They lend themselves well to being slow grown which is how we farm here at Springwater Farm, that extra time means they have the time to lay down intermuscular fat, known as marbling, something not often seen in pork. Their fat is not to be feared for the soya free diet and extensive pastures our pigs graze make them some of the healthiest pork you could eat! It is rich in omega 3 and 6 fatty acids (polyunsaturated fatty acids) and in natural antioxidants. Therefore, it is healthier than the fat of the white pig varieties used in intensive farming, and it is even good for the heart.
Don't hesitate to contact us. By farming slow growing breeds they way we do means we have a limited amount of meat to sell each year.
