The best pork you’ll ever eat

Scott Kersting, director of meat and seafood, shares why this new addition to our meat department is some of the best pork you’ll ever eat.

“Pork that tastes better than steak.” That’s how some of our butchers described the newest pork to hit our shelves. And they really love their steak.

Introducing Berkshire pork – the most tender, juicy and flavorful pork you’ll find in a grocery store.

For the first time in our meat departments, we’re proud to bring you what we believe is the highest quality pork from the highest quality Berkshire pork producers, Berkwood Farms.

Berkwood Farms is a coalition of independent family farmers and each raises their animals in a healthy, humane and environmentally friendly manner. This family-owned company, located in Des Moines, Iowa, raises pigs that are free of hormones and antibiotics. Their Berkshire pork is also gluten-free.

What is Berkshire pork?

Berkshire is a breed of pig and is the oldest registered breed in existence today. These pigs are raised for their meat’s distinctive color and marbling – two characteristics that make it some of the most highly sought after pork in the world.

Our Berkshire pork is made-to-order fresh from Berkwood Farms each week. Look for Berkshire pork in our full-service meat cases today!
