Acorn-Fed Pork

"Our pigs forage freely in large open paddocks. In summer we harvest 50 tonnes of acorns from the 4,000 oak trees on the farm to feed our pigs.

The acorn diet is the key to both the texture and the rich flavours of the pork, as an enzyme in the acorn enhances the intramuscular fat, which contains a high proportion of oleic acid. Oleic acid, a monounsaturated fatty acid, has been shown to lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol. Health food at its best!" - Oak Valley
