Pasturing pigs yields a more flavorful fat. These ribs are perfect for a couple hours on the smoker or in the oven. One of our family favorites, we season them with salt, a pinch of brown sugar, paprika, thyme and garlic before slow roasting or smoking. They're packed in half racks, averaging about a pound and a half each. Salt 'em, smoke 'em, and gnaw on some pasture-raised goodness!
North Mountain Pastures is a small family farm dedicated to producing great food using ecologically sound production practices. We farm on 84 acres in Perry County, Pennsylvania, in a way that heals the land, nourishes people, and treats animals with respect. This means animals are naturally raised outdoors, on grass or in carefully managed woodlots, and fed only non-GMO grain. We don’t use hormones, antibiotics, or other chemicals to medicate livestock.
Worried you don't know how to cook? Here's the thing, the quality of your ingredients is sort of like a cheat code for cooking. Your dish is only as good as your weakest ingredient. Grab some fresh produce, a good NMP sausage, and some potatoes, rice or polenta...you got a meal!
I love all the meats I get from North Mountain Pastures. As one of my kids said, "You can taste the care in each bite!" The way their animals are raised and then cultured makes the meat taste SO much better!
