  • We work in partnership with a co-op of 30 Iowa farmers (all small, family-owned farms) to supply us with the finest meats available.
  • The methods used to procure the meats are environmentally responsible and fully traceable with strict codes of responsibility and humane animal husbandry in effect.
  • The animals are naturally raised and humanely processed locally.
  • The animals are fed a 100% vegetarian diet, with no rendered animal byproducts, no antibiotics and no hormones.
  • Our product is the first cut at the plant every Thursday on all clean equipment to prevent cross contamination with other products.
  • All products are hand-inspected. If it doesn’t meet our high standards, it doesn’t make the cut.
  • Our whole hogs can be fed specialty diets for their last 100 days to subtly affect the flavor of the pork. Diets include: Apples, pecans, barley, walnuts, peaches

Get one 8-ounce boneless pork chop per person and soak in 2 c. water, after having mixed the water with 2 T. salt.   Brine for 5 minutes.  Take out and pat dry.  Season liberally, both sides, with Creole Seasoning, coarse French sea salt, and pepper.  Prepare the grill.  Grill the chops for five minutes over a very hot grill.  Turn and brush the tops with BBQ sauce.  Grill another five minutes, turn and coat the other side with BBQ.  Grill one more minute each side for the BBQ to stick.

Serve with coleslaw.
