Farm Table: Pork and Plants Dinner

Pork & Plants Heritage Farm in Altura, MN provides us with Red Wattle, a distinctive heritage breed. The Red Wattle pig is a domestic breed originating in the United States and is named for its red color and distinctive wattles, or tassels. These pigs are not fed any soy; instead they are fed high-protein corn and peas. This method of feeding allows them to develop a unique and delicious creamy fat. All of the feed that they eat is grown organically on the same farm. Although the farm is not certified organic, Pork & Plants' farming standards are so high that it stands out among other producers.
