At Heritage Foods USA we believe that to keep a breed alive, it has to be consumed. Because of that philosophy, we support farmers who are raising breeds that are considered endangered because they do not conform to the specifications of commodity agriculture; rapid growth and large litters. The emphasis on those two traits comes at the expense of flavor and texture. Breeds have different characteristics in terms of how they grow, and the various qualities of their meat.
The pure Six-Spotted Berkshire, which is now cultivated more widely than ever before, is a great all-purpose pig that offers delicious flavor with plenty of fat to keep it very juicy and succulent.
The Large Black is a favorite of farmers who appreciate the breed's intellect and docility. Its strength, hardiness, and ability to forage make it a valuable asset for pasture-based farming. The breed, native to southwestern England, gained popularity in the 1800s as farmers began to see that the animal could easily turn poor-quality feed into large quantities of high-quality meat. The Large Black's physical characteristics - its dark skin and large ears - make it stand out in terms of appearance and efficiency: its dark skin protects it from sunburn during long hours of grazing, and its long ears shield its eyes from dirt while foraging.
The Red Wattle is a lean animal with tender meat. The breed, which originally hails from Louisiana, was thought to be extinct until a wild herd resurfaced in the forest of Texas in the 19th Century.
The purity of the genetics in these breeds has been close to the edge of extinction, and with the help of farmers committed to preserving our agricultural patrimony, they are slowly returning to vigor. This fantastic package offers a great opportunity to compare and contrast breeds, and decide which one is your favorite. Once that decision is made.. well, you know where to go for more!
