Sourced from truly wild hogs from the forests of Texas, this is the only lard with a whopping 420 mg of natural omega 3s per serving.* It's inspired by those who like to let loose in the kitchen, and reserved for serious lard aficionados.
The best way to describe the taste of our Wild Boar Lard is earthy, nutty and oh yes … bacon-y!
Wild boar is also the most beautiful of the lards we offer (lard can indeed be beautiful), with its deep, rich caramel color.
It's great for savory pies, super flavorful sautéing of meats and veggies, stews, confits and even wild fries!
It's estimated that in Texas alone, there's a proliferation of nearly 2 million feral hogs. In order to keep numbers down, ranchers employ the services of several trappers in the area who catch the hogs in large boxes and bring them directly to an USDA facility for inspection. We work with Broken Arrow Ranch as part of this important process.
