Oh I’m Ach’in for Some Bac’in

iowaswabienhallCarl Blake of Rustic Rooster Farms has re-created the world’s best tasting breed of pig!  Using Meishan Swine and then crossbreeding them with Russian Wild Boar he created the Iowa Swabian Hall. Carl won best tasting pork at Cochon 555, a respected pork tasting competition.

iowaswabienhall2Blake’s pork is raised on barley sprouts and raw milk, both systems we plan to duplicate here at Jade Meadow Farm. Sprouts are the healthiest for animal and those who eat it.

Carl Blake, who has bred a unique pig, the Swabian HallWe are very excited at the possibility to raise this breed of pig on Jade Meadow. Brookie-Lee has been talking with Carl Blake and we hope to have Iowa Swabian Hall’s at Jade Meadow in the future! Brookie-Lee adores sausage and use to cook it a lot. When she discovered that her son got eczema from nitrates and nitrites they stopped buying it and only have it on rare occasions. Organic porks have tasted tough and dry in comparison so we’ve gone without mostly. But we are jonesing for some delicious juicy pork and thus our research pointed us to the best tasting pork in the country! And thankfully it’s in neighboring Iowa!
