Pasturing pigs yield a more flavorful fat. The low stress of its natural environment results in a more tender cut that we love to experience as carnitas, pulled pork, or in Ramen! These are whole pork butts, or half the entire pork shoulder, with the skin on! These average 8 lbs a piece, and they're full of flavor.
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!
