Heritage Foods USA
Heritage Foods USA was founded in 2001 as an arm of Slow Food USA, a non-profit organization established to “counter the rise of fast food, the disappearance of local food traditions and people’s dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.”
Heritage works directly with 40 family farmers and processes 200 pigs per week. All of their cuts come from humanely raised, heritage breed pigs.
Their Maple Sugar Cured Gloucestershire Old Spot Bacon ’s fat marbling is so sweet and milky, and this is a bacon we definitely recommend baking instead of frying so that with each bite you get a good mix of fat and lean. If you get a chance to try it and decide you like their bacon as much as we do, Heritage offers a Bacon Subscription to guarantee you’ll receive 3 pounds of their bacon every two months.
