Fat is flavor.  Fat is your friend.

Our pigs are fat.  At Hog Harvest, we will show you that fat has flavor and is a dish of beauty.

Besides rendering hog fat for lard, we will be making “lardo.”  Lardo is simply cured fat.  The thicker it is, the better the cure works.  The result is a sliver of glistening, salty, herb flavored (or not) deliciousness.  After trying our lardo and loving it, a friend shared this article with us:
