One thing we strive for at Spring Creek Farms is EXCELLENT pork. We believe we have just that! A huge factor is the breed we have selected — The Berkshire.
Now on to the nitty-gritty…why do WE choose it over other breeds? Well, for many reasons…
Number 1: Shorter Muscle Fiber
You may be asking, “What in the WORLD does this have to do with my meat?” Basically, this is what tells us how much marbling the meat is going to have. The shorter muscle fibers allow for LOTS OF MARBLING! Just what we want in a juicy pork chop! It also allows for some AMAZING flavor and tenderness!
Number 2: Lack of Stress
This breed is known for being stress-free and just enjoying life! They take every day one, at a time, which means less stress to the meat. — Causing less toughness!
Number 3: Bred for Higher PH and Oleic Acids
This breed was bred to contain higher PH levels which can make for darker, more FLAVORFUL meat! They also contain higher amounts of Oleic Acids which are mono-unsaturated omega-9 fatty acids. In layman’s terms….the good stuff you need!
We hope this provides insight into the INCREDIBLE heritage breed we love. We believe our choice provides y’all with the best quality meat available!
