The Red Wattle Hog
The red wattle hog is a large, rusty-red hog with a fleshy, decorative wattle attached to each side of its neck. Red wattle hogs are known for their hardiness, foraging activity, and rapid growth rate. Imported to the U.S. in the 1700s, they were hunted nearly to extinction. Now gaining favor by chefs and food critics around the country, red wattle pork is exceptionally lean and juicy with a rich beef-like taste and texture. More marbling in red wattle pork makes the meat almost creamy.
The Mangalitsa Hog
The mangalitsa is an imported pig originally from Hungary. They are coveted not only for their exceptionally flavorful, marbled meat, but their fat content is considered to be as beneficial as fish oil. Chefs rave about the meat as a culinary delicacy, with the lard’s fat content providing exceptional flavor not found in conventional pig breeds.
