Pork Back Ribs (~1.5 lbs)
Portioned to approximately 1.5lb per pack.
The McIntosh family raises heritage breeds of pigs (Tamworth and Berkshire) on their farm near Listowel, ON.
Berkshire pork has a naturally smokey sweet flavor and is prized for its evenly distributed, mild-flavored, well-marbled fat. It is a relatively rare, highly protected pedigree breed.
Tamworth pork is best known for making fabulous bacon since it has a big, long belly. It's also known for its extra-large chops. Like Durocs and Red Wattle, Tamworth pigs are a lovely red colour.

To keep the meat as fresh as possible, we visit the farms as close to the delivery date as possible. This may result in scenarios where, for example, a whole chicken may weigh less than what is specified on the website (as the size of the bird may vary seasonally) upon order. When such a scenario occurs, we aim to resolve this through refunds and/or providing additional weight than the average expected weight. This principle applies across to all other meats we sell.
