Our Woodland Pork Lard is not bleached, deodorized, hydrogenated or altered in any way. It is simply rendered (cooked down) pork fat from our pastured hogs. There is nothing else done to it or added to it. It is ready to be enjoyed and may just become your favorite kitchen fat!

Testimonial: I just had to write in to tell Your Family Farmer that your soy free woodland pork lard is the most delicious fat I have ever tasted! As someone with severe food sensitivities, the ability to get pure natural foods from you folks is a true blessing! Expect many more lard bulk orders to come. Thank you! ~Ronald B. Scranton, PA
Why use Lard?
We don't waste anything on our farm.
Especially when it comes to livestock. We respectfully use every bit of that animal to accomplish the most good possible.
What can't be eaten is carefully turned into rich composted and given back to the soil to fuel plant growth and build organic matter.
What CAN be eaten falls into two categories. The first category is LOVED by all and basically needs to be rationed out.... For example, people will "fight" for the chance to eat juicy pastured pork chops, crispy bacon, savory sausages, or BBQ baby back ribs.
But not everyone has as much love for the second category which makes up a sizeable portion of each pig. This category includes things like soup bones, knuckle bones, and LOTS of pork fat since we refuse to use the industry standard Ractopamine (Paylean) drug to keep our pigs artificially lean.
The good news is, we are able to partner with an Amish farmer friend to render some of this excess fat into beautiful Woodland Pork Lard that now falls into the loved-by-all category! :)
Lard is so versatile it's simple to use as a substitute for your everyday cooking oil.
It adds pizazz to everything from simple breakfast fried eggs to homemade French fries. Lard is the secret ingredient your Grandma used for her delectable flaky pie crust.
With our clean Woodland Pork Lard you can cook with confidence. No need to worry if it is Chemical-Free, GMO-Free, Antibiotic-Free, Hormone-Free, Soy-Free or Humanely Raised.
We farm with integrity to give you the peace of mind you deserve at every meal.
Enjoy the lard!
