Why more expensive The additional care and time involved in raising heritage breed pigs makes them more expensive to raise than other pork. Raised naturally, with a purpose and passion, these pigs mature as Mother Nature intended. They take longer to gain weight because of their indigenous diets, and the fact that they are raised on open pastures.
One of the rarest heritage breeds of hogs, the Black Hog is listed by the American Livestock Breeds Conservatory as endangered with fewer than 300 breeding hogs registered today.
Compared to other breeds, the flavors of the Black Hog’s meat is exceptional. The lean micro-marbled meat is extra tender due to the breed's short muscle fibers. This produces a tender, moist cut of pork with an exquisite and unique taste.
