We love hand-trimming each delicious pork chop and juicy tenderloin. We love slow smoking every strip of our signature bacon with real hardwood hickory chips. And we love finding new ways to enjoy pork, so you can too.
Simply put, we have passion for pork. We've worked with local farm families for over 50 years to secure the best quality pork, and no one takes more time, effort or care in providing delicious, fresh pork and bacon.
Breakfast, lunch or dinner, it's a difference you can taste in every bite.
