We are pleased to announce the formation of Firebrand Meats! This is a brand new meat company based on the concepts discussed on this blog in articles such as The ROS Theory of Obesity and Disastrous Trends In American Bacon.
The first offering from Firebrand Meats is a Low PUFA Pork CSA share. This is a very exciting project. We have sourced the best, old fashioned, “unimproved” heritage Berkshire hog genetics – the top bloodline of hogs that produce the famous Japanese Kurobuta or “black pork”. We are using the waste products from the production of pea protein – used in meat substitute products – to make a feed that is as low in polyunsaturated fat as can plausibly be produced. The hogs will be raised on pasture at the The Piggery Farm in Trumansburg. Brad will personally oversee the meat processing to ensure that the final products are delicious and attractively packaged. The meat will ship to the lower 48 states.
We are confident that this will be not only the healthiest, but also the best tasting pork you will ever eat.
