Organic Pork - the best charcoal bbq grill to buy
Pork is the most popular meat in Ireland except for chicken.
We eat all kinds of shapes: ham, bacon, ham, sausage, lunch meat, pork slices, black pudding and baked dinner.
At weddings and large social gatherings, spit-out roast pigs have become very popular and can feed the crowd. As an ex-
Vegan, I'm still a little sensitive to pork, so I started looking for the happiest pig I could find.
This allowed me to go to Gold River Farm in Aughrim, Co Wicklow, a certified organic farm that produces a variety of fruits, vegetables, and recently an outdoor organic farmbred pigs.
The farm covers an area of 7 acres and has grown to 120 acres.
Owner Alan Pearce and Mark Winterbotham both opposed raising pigs, and after seeing the traditional raising they were put off the idea in college.
But Evan Doyle, a local organic restaurant owner, found them and promised that he would buy 60 pigs a year.
That's how the story started.
Sows were introduced from Heritage, a company specializing in breeding and animal husbandry.
Breeding pairs are not considered organic, but any offspring they grew up on an organic farm are considered organic.
The female may produce two sets of piglets per year;
This number is higher in intensive agriculture.
The pig stayed with her mother in a shed to protect her.
They were weaned around six weeks and slightly longer on organic farms.
Since the Yellow River is mainly farmed with fruits and vegetables, pigs are integrated into it.
Once the crops are harvested, the pigs are transferred to the ground.
They will eat the rest of the vegetables, but most importantly, they will stir the inflated soil.
Feed pigs with organic feed and organic vegetables.
They lived a happy life and were not slaughtered until about seven months when they reached the right size.
This is about six weeks longer than traditional agriculture.
These pigs are very familiar with farmers because they need to be able to handle and touch them and move them from one area to another.
I can certainly prove this: I have never seen such a friendly farm animal.
I was wearing sparkly flip-flops and when they said the pigs liked glitter and toes I thought they were joking.
As soon as I climbed through the fence, the whole herd ran over to check me and lick my toes!
Mark and Allen agree that while they are very meek, you still need to respect the animal, especially the sows or boars during the breeding season.
Seven months later, the pigs went to an organic butcher, Ed Hicks, for slaughter, and turned into joints, sausages, black and white puddings.
Like organic farming, Ed is strictly monitored and all his recipes must be pre-prepared
Approved and regularly audited its premises.
Organic food is well managed in Ireland, and organic food does mean organic food.
At last, the piggy will be on your plate.
I was lucky enough to taste a few delicious dishes made with golden river pork by brooklodge and Wells Spa chefs in Covello.
To complete the painting, they also used locally grown salad leaves and vegetables from the farm.
The new term in the field of agriculture is "sustainable ".
In the Yellow River, crops or pigs are sold to customers first and then planted or bred.
So demand is supply first.
This eliminates waste because many farmers have experienced bad experiences when the market crashes and lost all their crops.
The concept of sustainable development goes further, and the whole farm works together in overall harmony.
Pigs eat vegetables and then turn over the soil and their fertilizer will fertilize for further crops.
When it is necessary to replenish the field, sow the clover to replenish the nutrition.
The next step will be to expand into the field of organic sheep raising, allowing lambs to graze on Clover.
The farm also provides two families and six employees.
In order to provide more professional services, Allen and Mark have adopted a scientific approach to organic agriculture.
They have just invested more than 1 million euros in the latest harvest and irrigation equipment.
It's a huge commitment that doesn't help when customers don't pay their bills and become bad debts, but luckily they still have good customers and a growing fan base.
The organic pork is rich in nutrition, and the flavor and health benefits are very good.
Most importantly, it is not used for non-
We know that these are not good for us and contribute to our overall toxic load.
The most interesting thing is that the better the diet of pigs, the healthier the fat will be.
It goes from saturated fat to more monosaturated fat.
This is better for cholesterol levels and heart disease.
In South Africa, there is an advertising campaign to promote pork as "another white meat.
This is to promote lean pork as a good source of protein.
So this summer, enjoy some tender pork chops, juicy spareribs, or essential sausages or sausages during a barbecue!
