Heritage Berkshire

Heritage Berkshire Logo

The Berkshire hog breed dates back to the 1600’s, rumored to have been first discovered by Sir Oliver Cromwell who prized Berkshire hogs for their superior meat quality.  During this time, the Berkshire was described as a reddish or sandy colored pig.  Approximately 320 years ago, East Asian black pigs were imported to England where they were crossed with the Berkshire producing the black coat and 6 distinct spots that we see today.  The British Royal family has been dedicated to breeding Berkshire hogs and are known to have herds at their Windsor Castle estate.

Not long after the creation of these black Berkshire hogs, they were sent as a gift to modern day Okinawa.  The people of Okinawa were so impressed by the quality of the Berkshire that they sent some north to Kyushu, now home to the world famous Kagoshima Kurobuta pork and Kobe beef brands.  Within a century of its arrival, the Japanese acquired a preference to the robust, tender, juicy pork and created feeding and animal management techniques that brought out the best tasting pork ever.

Halperns’ Southeast Family

Halperns’ Southeast Family LogoHalperns’ Southeast Family Farms Pork is raised naturally in the outdoors in Alabama and Tennessee. We have contracted with several small, local farmers to raise natural, true heritage breeds (Duroc and Berkshire) to support the program. The hogs are treated humanely and with respect. They are never given antibiotics or added hormones and are fed an all vegetarian diet. Try it and see if this is not the best tasting pork you have ever tasted.

The distinction of “Well Marbled” pork lies in the breed. Natural true heritage Duroc and Berkshire breeds produce tender, abundantly marbled, and above all, great tasting pork. These animals are raised naturally in the outdoors in Alabama and Tennessee by a cooperative of small local farmers. These animals are provided everything nature intended them to have and the room to roam and exhibit their natural behaviors. They are never given antibiotics or added hormones and are fed only natural grains. By giving these animals the respect they deserve and the room to nest and forage naturally, they produce the best tasting pork on earth! Be sure to ask your Halperns’ representative for more specific information and a current price list.
