A Hungarian heritage breed with the best bacon in the world and it’s low in cholesterol… That is amazing! When we started learning more about Mangalitsa pigs we knew that this heritage breed would be a perfect match for our fourth generation Hungarian farm.
Mangalitsa meat is considered among the tastiest pork in the world. The meat of the Mangalitsa pig is reddish (unlike the “other white meat” that Americans are accustomed to), highly marbled with creamy white fat, and is high in omega-3 fatty acids and natural antioxidants. This is due to a natural diet that primarily consists of forage and barley. Mangalitsa lard is lighter and it melts at a lower temperature than lard from other pigs because it contains more unsaturated fat. It has a soft creamy buttery texture that will make any food taste better and it’s amazing for baking.
Our pigs are lovingly pasture-raised. Mangalitsa pigs take more than twice as much time to grow than a standard pork production pig, which means that they require about twice as much feed and care during their lifetime. They also don’t grow as large as standard pigs. It costs more to buy and raise mangalitsa pigs and that is why you’ll find that these pork prices are higher than standard pork prices. Oh, but it is so very worth it. Try just one pork chop and when it melts in your mouth I bet you’ll be hooked. Not to mention the BACON!!
