From our outdoor reared Mangalitsa pigs
variety of cured meats
You can buy our own homemade smoked sausage, bacon and ham. Mangalitsa are known as the Kobe beef of the pig world and renowned for their healthy fat, high in omega 3, 6 and 9 (more than salmon!). Mangalitsa is originally from this region, and up until 30 years ago, nearly went extinct when there were only 400 left in the entire world.
Although we find it hard to turn our pigs into food, we find peace in knowing they have lived the happiest life possible.
