Delight in the robust, hearty flavor of Oregon Meat Co.'s pork kidney fat, an exquisite highlight in our gourmet range of locally sourced, pasture-raised pork products. Sourced from the kidney area of our carefully raised pigs, this premium fat is a key ingredient that will enrich your home-cooked dishes with a depth of taste and mouth-watering aroma.
Our pork kidney fat, also known as 'leaf lard,' is among the highest grade of pork fat, revered by chefs and home cooks alike for its delicate, almost sweet flavor and smooth, creamy texture when rendered. This makes it the perfect addition to elevate your pastries, pies, and roasts to gourmet level.
At Oregon Meat Co., we take great pride in our sustainable and ethical farming practices. Our pigs graze on verdant Oregon pastures and are nourished with fresh, locally milled food that is free from GMOs, corn, or soy. Our dedication to these methods ensures a pork product that's as environmentally conscious as it is exceptional in taste.
Render it down to create a superb lard for making flaky, golden pie crusts or crispy fried chicken. Add it to slow-cooked stews or soups for an infusion of rich, hearty flavor. Or use it for a traditional British pork pie, where its unique characteristics truly shine.
While being a rich source of flavor, pork kidney fat is also packed with nutrition. It is a good source of Vitamin D, a vital nutrient for bone health, and offers a balanced mix of monounsaturated and saturated fats. Remember, moderation is key when enjoying this flavorful ingredient.
Our average package size is approximately 1.5 lbs, perfect for numerous culinary experiments. Discover the exceptional quality of our pasture-raised pork and embark on a journey of taste that will captivate your palate, while supporting sustainable and ethical farming practices. It's time to create dishes that are unforgettable, full of flavor, and a tribute to our beautiful planet.
