About the Bacon:
This wonderful, smoked-to-order, bacon is prepared the old-fashioned way. The Berkshire ham is cured using a secret-recipe salt and sugar brine, and then smoked with famed Washington State applewood - the way Rick's family has been making bacon for over 30 years. It's never too smoky, with a perfect balance between fat and meat. The bacon is then sliced and frozen, and packed with ice before shipped.

About the Ham
These hams come from naturally raised Berkshire pork on a small farm in eastern Oregon. The heritage breed is fed a natural diet of barley - important for the color, texture, and taste of the meat.
