Jowl bacon is flavored just like traditional belly bacon but is said to retain more flavor than belly bacon. Often it is used to cook with but is amazing to eat anyway you would eat belly bacon.
Our Mangalitsa are raised in a happy and healthy natural environment with several acres of forest, wetlands, and fields to forage. We feed locally produced grain ration that consists of Rye, Oats, Corn, Soy, and a mineral mix. We grind and mix all of our grain on the farm and purchase from local farmers. Our Mangalitsa also receive supplementation in the form of fresh produce (turnips, parsnips, squash, and beets) on a regular basis. Our Mangalitsa are allowed to grow for 14 - 18 months. They are never confined and get to be pigs like nature intended.
