And then there’s the curing…

We know people are fed up with buying bacon filled with heaps of water. Yes it’s cheaper… but at Freedom Farms we say …when you buy bacon, buy bacon…not heaps of water.

Sure we do add brine to our fresh pork to cure the bacon but for us it’s about making dry style bacons that go crispy… not about trying to double the weight.

QUICK FACT

WHAT’S UP WITH BACON THESE DAYS?

…Sadly most of the bacon and ham sold these days is made from frozen imported pork. Farmed the sad, intensive way, indoors in crates and pens and then it’s made even cheaper by pumping it up with lots of water to increase the weight…

We reckon people deserve to know where the pork came from and exactly how the piggies have been farmed. We also think bacon should go crisp when you cook it. Sure it costs more to do it this way… but we think it’s worth it.
