Stuffed Pork Chops
July 27, 2018
What makes Berkshire pork the finest quality pork on the market? Study after study has found that Berkshire pigs produce the absolute best quality meat due to their shorter muscle fibers and intense marbling, which contribute to optimal flavor and tenderness. Furthermore, most industrially raised pigs eat soybeans and corn, while Berkshire pigs are fed higher quality food such as fresh vegetables and fruit, oats, and molasses. Because they are fed the best quality food, Berkshire pigs yield the best quality meat.
